About WIFS

Members benefit from monthly educational webinars on a variety of business and professional development topics, a mentorship program, and peer connection. More than three-quarters of 1,000+ members have 10+ years of business experience and earn $75K or more annually. Regional Chapters are active across the continental US and Alaska.

WIFS is fortunate for the support it receives from its Partners for Excellence: Ameritas, Lincoln Financial Group, Mutual of Omaha, National Life Group, Penn Mutual and Prudential.

Each year, WIFS hosts a national conference featuring personal and professional development workshops, along with well-known industry speakers. Conference is also an annual opportunity to recognize outstanding member contributions, personal success, as well as to foster connection and sharing of best practices among members.

WIFS knows what businesswomen are discovering on a daily basis:

  • There’s a difference between hiring women and positioning them for success.
  • There’s a crucial need for resources, support and shared wisdom to offset feelings of isolation in the workplace.
  • Businesswomen thrive in collaborative environments that promote teamwork, mentoring and constructive feedback.

No other professional organization can bring you programming designed exclusively for women, by women. Thank you for considering becoming a member of WIFS. Learn more.
