About the Chapter

The Greater Ohio Valley Chapter of Women In Defense (WID) was created in August 2013. Officers and directors were installed at the Chapter's inaugural meeting on August 15, 2013.

The Greater Ohio Valley region has a prominent defense footprint and strong ties to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, creating both the need and opportunity for professional development in the national security arena. Local government and industry women worked together to establish the Greater Ohio Valley Chapter of WID to support women in all aspects of national security. The Chapter is focused on networking, mentoring, education and career growth.

WID membership is open to women and men whose primary professional activities relate to national security. WID currently has more than 4,000 members and 21 chapters nationwide, with the Greater Ohio Valley Chapter being the 21st. It is an affiliate of the National Defense Industrial Association.

Our Focus

Networking

We produce meaningful professional development and networking events that provide members with opportunities to learn, grow, and feel energized about their career.

Mentoring

We are a non-profit organization run entirely by a network of dedicated volunteers. Working together, we promote connections and build relationships.

Education

We support women who are working toward careers in defense and national security by offering two scholarship programs.

Career Growth

My vision for FY17 is to equip our membership with the contacts and tools to help them achieve leadership positions in our local Defense Industry. It is my sincere hope that the relationships they foster within our Women in Defense chapter help each of them to reach their goals.
