Who We Are (We Are Influencers and Thought Leaders)

WIFS is devoted to advancing career opportunities, providing professional development and representing women's interests in a predominantly-male industry. Through attraction, retention, and a unique focus on mentoring and networking, WIFS is the largest women’s association empowering women in the finance and insurance professions. No other financial services organization provides programming designed for women, by women.
