Inforum is the leading professional organization focused on creating strategic connections and accelerating careers for women throughout Michigan and the Midwest. Inforum has offices in Detroit and Grand Rapids with operations in Kalamazoo, Lansing and Saginaw. Inforum was founded as the Women's Economic Club in 1962.
Inforum is one of the few organizations of its kind in the country that combines professional development, top-notch networking and original research to accelerate careers for women – and make a positive impact on the business environment. Inforum is the best choice to connect on a strategic and personal level with other accomplished women. This kind of networking simply isn’t available with other organizations that are specific to a profession or geography.
Our Story: Inforum Celebrates 50 Years
Inforum Center for Leadership was established in 2002 as the education and research arm of Inforum. It is a 501 c(3) organization with its own board of directors separate from Inforum. The formation of Inforum Center for Leadership (ICL) turbocharged Inforum’s mission to help women lead and succeed, giving the organization a real discipline and substance to developing women as leaders – not just supporting them.
ICL programs serve a broad range of professional women in different stages and types of careers – from emerging leaders, to high-potential executives, high-tech entrepreneurs, and for-profit corporate board leaders. Inforum Center for Leadership also conducts and publishes research on women’s leadership influence in Michigan, including the Michigan Women’s Leadership Index.
