NETWORKING & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
We provide a forum for networking and professional development programs for defense and national security professionals at the national and local levels.
MEMBER RATES & NDIA MEMBERSHIP
Discounted member rates at Women In Defense and National Defense Industry Association (NDIA) events that save more than the price of WID membership dues. Membership to the NDIA, a $30 value, includes a subscription to the National Defense Magazine.

GIVING BACK & SCHOLARSHIPS
An opportunity to give back to the profession through educational and networking events, mentoring, and community service activities. Support the Women In Defense HORIZONS Scholarship Program, which has made 116 awards of more than $180,000 to deserving recipients pursuing education toward a career in national security since 1990.
Members are strongly encouraged to participate in meetings, seminars, and committee activities to ensure a mutually beneficial relationship between themselves and the organization.
