Who We Are
Would you believe that as late as the 1960s women were not allowed to belong to business organizations? Inforum, founded in 1962 as the Women’s Economic Club, served as a pioneer for the advancement of women in business by giving them a place to learn, network, support each other, and find speaking opportunities.
Today Inforum continues to build on that early legacy and is the only 501(c)(3) educational and charitable nonprofit in Michigan – and one of only a few in the country – designed to help companies boost talent initiatives and incredible women like you break the glass ceiling.
What We Do
CONNECTIONS. You can participate in more than 25 affinity groups in Southeast and West Michigan. Whether you’re interested in volunteering, health and wellness, geography or even wine and craft beer, you’re sure to find like-minded women in one of the informal groups organized by our members.
EXPOSURE. We bring in top industry speakers for our events.
NETWORKING. We’ve built specialized industry groups in automotive, health care, manufacturing and technology. Our emerging inSTEM initiative works to build the talent pipeline for professions in science, technology, engineering and math.
LEADERSHIP. Join a committee, council or our board of directors to help lead and shape our work. We also offer opportunities to serve as role models for girls and young women.
EDUCATION. We offer professional development programs for women at all stages of their careers from our flagship program, Executive Leadership, to a variety of targeted programs for emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, veterans, and aspiring board members. We also offer a collaborative program with the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business.
