The Worldwide Association of Female Professionals is indeed the gold standard when it comes to networking for women. For one reason above all others:
The screening process. It can seem a bit lengthy at first for the uninitiated but if you have the qualifications and credentials you will have no problems being accepted into the network.
It is a necessary process in order to maintain the high standard of the network and the quality of connections.
WAoFP regards it’s members very highly and expects each member to extend the same standards of courtesy and professionalism that they would expect of one another.
