The WOMEN’S FORUM OF NORTH CAROLINA, INC. provides women of proven influence and high personal achievement opportunities for strengthening personal development through exchange of information, expertise, ideas and experience, as well as a strong support network. The Women’s Forum is a vehicle through which women are effective agents for constructive change by speaking out and taking action on public issues, through the development of potential women leaders, and as a force for the enhancement and enrichment of the lives of all women.
The WOMEN’S FORUM OF NORTH CAROLINA, INC. is comprised of members who are committed to improving the status of women by attaining equal opportunities for women in education, the work force, social and civic responsibilities, religious life, corporate structure, government, the law and the arts.
In the press release dated October 13, 1976, a group of fifteen women leaders committed to the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) from North Carolina announced plans to organize the Women’s Forum of North Carolina. While that early release was not considered particularly newsworthy by North Carolina newspapers, now, many years later, the Women’s Forum letterhead commands considerable attention and respect among members of the media, legislators, corporate executives, and community leaders all across the state of North Carolina.
