The Ventura County Women's Forum Collaborative is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to empowering Ventura County women around the 12 critical areas of concern outlined at the Fourth World Conference on Women held in Beijing in 1995: Poverty, Education, Health, Violence, Economic Justice, Power Sharing, Institutional Mechanisms, Human Rights, Media, Peace, Environment, and the Girl-Child. These concerns were reviewed and reinstated at the Beijing + 15 Conference in New York, 2010, and the Beijing + 16 Conference (New York, 2011).

Between 2006 and 2012, we held five major, full-day forums with broad community attendance. In the Fall of 2013, we introduced a new format to provide a vehicle for our many member organizations to host single topic, 60 minute presentations on subjects related to our stated issues through a gender lens.
