A Message from our President

Dear IWF Florida members,

The Florida forum of IWF is an invitation-only organization of women of significant achievement from Miami to Palm Beach. Every sector (doctors, lawyers, artists, businesswomen, activists, clergy, nonprofit executives, entrepreneurs, elected officials and others) is represented. We come together across national and international boundaries to share knowledge and ideas, enrich each other’s lives, provide a network of support and open possibilities for the next generation of women leaders.

Through local dinner gatherings, lunch and learns, mentoring the next generation of women leaders, and global conferences, members convene to explore ideas related to leadership, the status of women and how we are creating a better future for our community – local and global.
Last October we hosted the 2018 IWF World Leadership Conference in Miami, and we had nearly 1000 women from around the world attend, exploring topics from the #MeToo movement to women in government to sea level rise. Women are in the forefront of creating a sustainable, equitable future for our world.

Thank you for your interest in IWF!

Katy Sorenson
