Inforum programs serve a broad range of professional women at different stages and types of careers – from nonprofit professionals, to emerging and rising corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, veterans and corporate board leaders.

Volunteer committees are at the center of the Inforum experience. They provide the energy, the diverse talent, the creativity, business experience and connections that enable Inforum to thrive. Joining committees gives members an opportunity to share resources, build networks and make friends. Special skills are required on some committees, so membership is not automatic, but we will contact you.
Jobs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics are growing faster than in any other U.S. sector. But even though women comprise half the workforce, the National Girls Collaborative Project reports that nearly 70 percent of the science and engineering jobs are held by men. Inforum’s inSTEM initiative aims to help narrow the STEM gender gap by providing women with opportunities to serve as role models for girls and young women through collaborations with other nonprofits.

Regional Councils are critical to Inforum’s mission and operational success. They are closest to Inforum’s most valuable asset – its members – because the councils are composed of members. They expand the reach and bandwidth of Inforum by serving as visible ambassadors in the marketplace and leading/serving on strategic committees that implement Inforum’s strategy and key initiatives. The councils provide an opportunity for members to showcase and strengthen their skills in a prominent leadership role.
The Inforum Group Speakers Bureau provides an opportunity for Inforum members to share their areas of expertise with other members and hone their speaking and presentation skills.
