More than 500 businesspeople from around New England are anticipated to attend the 2014 Business Women’s Forum (BWF) on October 10 in Southington, Connecticut from 8:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jane Pinho of Prospect, Connecticut, and branch manager with Ion Bank in Prospect, has been named chairwoman of 32nd annual event. As chairwoman, Pinho is overseeing coordination of one of Connecticut’s largest and longest-running full-day annual career-development conference for women that will feature keynote addresses by Barbara Corcoran, a well-known real estate mogul, business expert, private investor and star of ABC-TV’s “Shark Tank”, and Amanda Gore, CEO of The Joy Project.             

The non-profit Business Women’s Forum is a program of the Greater Waterbury Chamber of Commerce Foundation. The thriving organization is led by 35 female executives dedicated to the professional and personal growth of working women. “The Power of Self: Leading the Way” is the innovative theme for the well-attended, and much-anticipated, 2014 BWF that will include keynote speeches, six professional development workshops, all-day networking, breakfast, lunch, and a closing reception.

The mission of the BWF is to raise monies for a scholarship fund for female Post University students to pursue business educations. “BWF’s continual commitment has been to the equality of opportunity and advancement for women in business,” explained Pinho. “During the past 31 years, the BWF has generated in excess of $185,000 toward those scholarships.”
