About WHF

As market cycles and political climates have come and gone, WHF has provided up-to-the-minute information, networking opportunities, and the means for professional development with a particular focus on women in the field. 

Our mission is to promote and support our members’ professional growth through sharing knowledge and exploring issues.

Members come from the private sector, state, local, and federal agencies, from not-for-profit organizations, and community groups. 

WHF is run by a small board of active volunteer members elected on an annual basis. 

WHF was founded in 1981 by a group of women who saw an opportunity to enhance their careers and that of other women by coming together.
