The Women’s Development Forum “WDF” is a Not-For-Profit organisation dedicated to supporting women to find greater career success and fulfillment while building strong network connections; its ultimate aim is to help unlock more of the potential in the female workforce in the Channel Islands.
Founded in 2009 by Michelle Johansen, WDF offer lunch time and evening meetings in Guernsey and Jersey designed to appeal to all working women to help build network connections in an easy, friendly community of like-minded women. WDF utilises a variety of meeting formats including guest speakers, panel events and table conversations, with each meeting tackling subjects pertinent to women in the work place and career development.
WDF also offers a series of 1/2 day skills workshops and the Women's Leadership Forum, a natural progression for those who like the WDF style and want to deepen their learning experience.
WDF membership brings together women from different industries, backgrounds, ages, experience and positions, enabling all to learn from each other’s experiences.
