The Women's Enterprise Forum (The Forum) serves in an advisory capacity to the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) Board of Directors. The Forum gives input and feedback on WBENC programs and other matters at the direction of the Board. Participation in The Forum offers opportunities for WBENC certified Women's Business Enterprises (WBEs) to represent the voice of all women's business enterprises and engage in networking and development activities with other WBEs and member corporations and government entities. The Forum Leadership Team (FLT) and Forum Committee Representatives (FCR) are appointed by their certifying Regional Partner Organization.  The Forum has an elected Chair and two Vice Chairs who serve on the WBENC Board of Directors. Seven additional WBEs from the Forum also serve on the WBENC Board of Directors.
