Who We Are

The Women In Defense Capital Chapter (WID-DC) supports more than 600 members across the National Capital Region and provides opportunities throughout the year, and around the region, for its members to meet, learn, and grow. WID-DC provides development, mentorship, and scholarship opportunities that ensure America’s future has a vanguard of talented and devoted women serving our national security mission in government, private, and national community service positions.

We are a community of powerful women supporting the defense and national security industries.
