Project Forum Application

Thank you for your interest in the Women’s Development Collaborative Project Forum. This program represents the true spirit of our organization – to support women-led businesses and projects. The purpose of the Forum is to connect a woman developer with seasoned professionals to address her project’s most difficult challenges. Each Forum is carefully tailored to the specific needs of the applicant’s project. The ninety-minute format includes a short presentation from the developer followed by a round-table style panel engagement with her to ask questions, brainstorm, and provide actionable direction. WDC audience members are invited to observe the presentation and panel discussion and to participate in a Q&A period at the end of the session.

A dedicated WDC Project Forum Team assists the applicant to target the project issues to be addressed in the Forum and assembles panel members with applicable expertise. The applicant prepares briefing materials for the panel members and makes a short presentation at the session. Please review the Project Forum materials on the WDC website to determine if the timeline and preparation required are workable. If so, we would be delighted to review your application!
