About The Event

 

WFF is the Food Industry’s thought leader on women’s advancement and gender equity. We provide the research, insights and best practice solutions that enable food companies to address the pressing need for talent, gain better consumer insights and drive business growth by realizing the full potential of women leaders.
 
As the premier leadership development organization working since 1989 to advance women, we provide research-driven resources that enable women to drive their own career advancement and help organizations develop work environments where women thrive.
 
One of the most visible and high-impact ways we support business growth in the Food Industry and develop women leaders is through our ANNUAL LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE. We apply our data-driven insights to tailor Conference content to what women need at every career stage to accelerate advancement.
