Visionary Voices

Through our Visionary Voices initiative, the women of The Forum hope to empower others with personal stories about their paths to leadership. Each story is three minutes in length and relates to a Forum member’s roads travelled, life experiences and/or the individuals who have influenced her on her journey as a woman leader. We invite you to be inspired by the impactful stories of these visionary women.
