You are smart. Strong. Successful. You are WID.

Come celebrate with us Thursday, June 14, at the annual Women In Defense National Conference at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, DC. 

“Smart. Strong. Successful.” is this year’s theme, encouraging attendees to take a moment to celebrate our victories and prepare ourselves to do more in the future.   

WID’s event will offer a variety of sessions featuring powerful speakers, the return of the Career Expo for attendees to explore opportunities with companies committed to diversity and inclusion, and a strong focus on networking throughout the entire day. The annual Service to the Flag Awards Ceremony luncheon will recognize two women, one from industry and one from government, who set the standards for achievement in support of our national defense. 

WID is pleased to announce that the afternoon keynote address will be provided by Admiral John Richardson, USN, Chief of Naval Operations.

Registration will open in mid-March 2018.
