I enjoy the events and getting to know my colleagues at deeper level. I’m in awe of our members’ accomplishments and their contributions to our Nation’s Defense. I’m proud to be a member of such a great organization.
When I joined WID San Diego, I never expected to meet such amazing people. It was through the various networking and social events I was able to meet people in the right positions to guide me and recommend me for not one, but two career moves that have skyrocketed my professional development within the DOD. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with so many wonderful women and to empower each other to succeed in an industry consisting predominantly of men. WID is an organization that can help you learn to grow as a women, meet fellow women in the industry and encourage you to strive for greater success in your career.
I have been in the Defense Industry for over 16 years. Women in Defense has provided support, education and connections that have been instrumental in my career. I am consistently inspired by the scores of women and men that serve as professional and community role models, and impressed how WID utilizes common threads of national security to unite vastly diverse groups to shared causes and charitable platforms. I am proud to be a member of this exceptional organization.
