President's Message

Welcome to Our Chapter

Welcome to the Women in Defense, Central Florida Chapter of (WID CFL), established in 2009 by influential women leaders in the Central Florida region.

Women have played an essential role in shaping the national security industry, bringing invaluable perspectives and expertise to the forefront.

We have overcome obstacles, shattered glass ceilings, and paved the way for future generations of women to excel in this field. Our collective efforts have advanced the mission of national security and fostered a more inclusive and diverse industry.

WID CFL strives to provide a platform for networking, professional development, and mentorship. Through our events and initiatives, we aim to create a strong network of women and men who can inspire, support, and uplift each other.

I encourage you to get involved, engage, and leverage resources and opportunities offered by WID, Central Florida.

WID actively engages with the community through various initiatives:

  1. Networking Events: Regular gatherings where members can connect with professionals, foster relationships, exchange ideas, and encourage collaboration.
  2. Professional Development Workshops: Covering a broad range of topics, including leadership development, career advancement, communication skills, and industry trends.
  3. Scholarships and Grants: Support for women pursuing education and careers in STEM-related fields.
  4. Outreach and Community Engagement: Active participation in outreach programs and events, promoting STEM education to inspire and encourage young women to consider STEM/National Security careers.

I encourage you to get involved, engage, and leverage resources and opportunities offered by WID, Central Florida.

Thank you for being a part of this incredible community. I look forward to the journey ahead and the impact we will make together.

We hope you will engage with WID CFL!
