Women In International Security (WIIS) is a global organization dedicated to advancing women’s leadership and achieving gender equality in international peace and security.

Committed to achieving gender equality, WIIS publishes research, conducts training, and convenes policy forums that bridge the gap between gender and today’s critical security issues.

WIIS helps the international community to make commitments to include women in peace and security decision-making at all levels. WIIS’s efforts result in new and expanding opportunities for women, with an increased presence in foreign and defense affairs and representation at the highest levels of private and public service.

Increasing professional opportunities of women

WIIS provides valuable services and resources to build a global network of women in the peace and security field, and increases the number and visibility of women across sectors and around the world. WIIS also educates and inspires women at all stages of their careers – the multigenerational aspect of its network is one of WIIS’ greatest strengths.

A key objective of the WIIS Mentor and Professional Development (MPD) program is to increase the professional opportunities of women, focusing specifically on women at the mid and senior-levels. The MPD program helps women navigate real and presumed obstacles in their careers through the provision of a skill-building series, resource center, and promotion of a transparent network of leaders.
