-Businesswomen thrive in collaborative environments that promote teamwork, mentoring and constructive feedback.

Women in Insurance and Financial Services (WIFS) was founded in 1936 and is an association of financial services professionals working together to attract, develop and advance women. We champion career opportunities, provide professional development and represent women's interests to the profession. No other financial services professional organization provides programming designed for women, by women. Through leadership in attraction and retention and a unique focus on mentoring and networking, WIFS is the largest women’s association empowering women financial professionals to succeed.

Membership is comprised of industry leaders, client facing and allied professionals who benefit from National and local chapter services. Our vision is to be the global change leader inspiring women to achieve their dreams.
