Welcome from the Chair

Nearly 29 years ago, the USM Women’s Forum was formed to bring together the women of the University System of Maryland in order to enhance the status of women, to foster networking among women and to encourage the participation of women in all facets of the System. On behalf of the system’s faculty, staff, and students, the Forum is honored to serve as a leading organization within the USM promoting equity to all.

We hope that in the upcoming year you will be able to be a part of USMWF by attending our annual conference, tuning into one of our webinars or even by bringing your talents to serve on the Executive Council. We look forward to hearing from you!
