AFCEA’s Women Outreach Leadership (WOL) network isn’t solely an AFCEA initiative; it is an extended family looking to increase the participation and visibility of women at the local chapters of AFCEA International. As one of the three pillars of Women in AFCEA, the Women Outreach Leadership network seeks to replicate its goals and events at chapters all over the globe.

The intent of the WOL network is to assist chapter presidents in achieving the following goals:

  1. Nominate leaders to the AFCEA International Board of Directors
  2. Create a WOL position on each chapter’s Executive Committee
  3. Host a women-focused event or initiative at each chapter
  4. Initiate a women-related program (focused on STEM, scholarships, mentorship, etc.) at each chapter
 

Jenifer Spencer, Colleen Dilly and Brooke Eiser, network co-chairs, are excited to start working with chapter presidents and volunteers to achieve these goals. If you are interested in joining us on this important journey, reach out today to women@afcea.org. As a Women Outreach Leader, you will broaden your network, enjoy leadership opportunities and vote for the winners of the Women’s Appreciation Awards. Our growing network looks forward to engaging with you!
