About The Event

 

The WFF LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE is the premiere women’s leadership event of the year – THE place to find career-long friends, advocates, development and unmatched inspiration.

Women’s Foodservice Forum (WFF) is the leading advocacy community for female professionals in the Food Industry, offering unmatched leadership development, inspirational role modeling, meaningful networking opportunities, and the ability to practice leadership skills in a supportive environment.

Since 1989, we’ve helped women drive their own career advancement and helped organizations develop work environments where women thrive.  One of the most visible and high-impact ways we do that is through the WFF LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE. We apply our data-driven insights to tailor Conference content to what women need at every career stage to accelerate their advancement and grow their organizations.
