Who are our members?

WIFS' membership is composed of industry leaders, client-facing and allied professionals who benefit from national and local chapter services. Members benefit from monthly educational webinars on a variety of business and professional development topics, a mentorship program, and peer connections. More than three-quarters of members have 10+ years of business experience and earn $100K or more annually. Regional chapters are active across the continental United States and Alaska.

 

How does mentorship work?

WIFS’ mentorship program is unparalleled, offering a remarkable opportunity for experienced professionals to pay it forward by sharing their expertise and providing guidance to those just embarking upon their careers or beginning a new endeavor. For mentees, the experience provides a fundamental stepping-stone on their journey to succeed in a male-dominated industry. 

The Mentorship Program is offered twice a year and is free to members. Mentors and mentees are matched based on their personalities, goals and interests, and mentor-mentee pairs have access to a variety of resources to guide them through the process, including regular conference calls with the National staff.

What kind of networking opportunities are there for members?

If you are simply looking for referrals, WIFS may not be the right fit for you. BUT, if you want to join an organization that has committed itself throughout its 85-year history to advancing women in the insurance and financial services industry, welcome! This organization is for you! Whether you are starting fresh out of school, you’ve decided to change careers, or you just want to connect with women who have probably shared many of your experiences as a woman in the field, you’re in the right place. 

 

Why should I attend the WIFS Conference?

WIFS’ annual Conference is a once-a-year opportunity to meet other professionals from all areas of the insurance and financial services field, hear from leading experts in the field, socialize with "sister" finance and insurance professionals, participate in lively interactive sessions, win prizes, and more.
