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 in an underrepresented profession. No other financial services organization provides programming designed for women, by women. 

WIFS and its members have discovered: 

  • 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

Membership is comprised 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 $75K or more annually. Regional chapters are active across the continental United States and Alaska. 

Our vision is set on being the global change leader inspiring women to achieve their dreams. 

Support and Retention
WIFS is fortunate for the support it receives from its Partners for Excellence:

  • Prudential
  • Lincoln Financial Group
  • National Life Group
  • PennMutual
  • Principal

Each year, WIFS hosts an annual national conference featuring personal and professional development workshops and well-known industry speakers. Conference is a unique opportunity to recognize outstanding member contributions, personal success, and fosters connections among our diverse network of members.
