 WOMEN IN DEFENSE, A National Security Organization 

Cultivating and supporting the advancement and recognition of women in national security is the mission of
Women In Defense, A National Security Organization (WID). WID was established to provide women a formal environment for professional growth through networking, education and career development. Membership is open to professional women and men whose professional activities relate to national security. As of Fall, 2015, our vibrant WID community has 20 chapters throughout the nation as well as international members. Through its HORIZONS Scholarship Program, WID encourages the pursuit of careers in support of STEM, national defense and national security.
