Our Mission

whs_5th anniversary_logo transparentThe Mission of Women in Homeland Security is to provide a professional organization for women working in the field of homeland security. As a relatively new field, the organization strives to provide women with a forum to learn about the many facets of the discipline and to build the connections necessary for their own professional development and to understand the full spectrum of homeland security. Women in Homeland Security is also committed to assuring that we never forget the threat of terrorism and the need for our nation to maintain its vigilance — despite the absence of a terrorist attack since September 11, 2001.  Through charitable work, events and activities, WHS supports those fighting for a peaceful future.   2014-2015 marks the organization’s 5th Anniversary of serving the homeland security community.  We look forward to an exciting year of activities to build our understanding and appreciation of one another and encourage a collaborative, team-oriented approach to securing our citizens and our country.
