WIFS is your partner in advancing your career through professional education. We are committed to educating and supporting field management by providing leadership support, professional development tools and strategies to develop the women on your team(s).

According to Mass Mutual's Vice President for Central Region, Peter Nejad: “It’s no secret that women have traditionally been underrepresented in the financial services sector and remain so today. I want to help shift the current paradigm to better meet the demands of the market by increasing our ability to attract and cultivate top-notch talent. WIFS is an organization dedicated to attracting, developing and advancing women in the financial services industry, and it has the resources necessary to help me attract and retain female advisors.”

Leadership Webinars

Managers have their own developmental needs and challenges. The Leadership Webinar Series focuses on supporting and educating field management. Leaders garner successful strategies, experience and easy-to-implement techniques on how to develop women on their team. Leadership webinars will be held quarterly in 2019 on the last Wednesday of the second month in the quarter. Webinars are free for members, but registration is required. If your curiosity is piqued, listen to session previews or check out upcoming Leadership Webinars.

Leadership Study Groups

As a manager in this industry, you face unique challenges. WIFS Leadership Study Groups bring together managers and leaders from insurance, legal, accounting and financial planning backgrounds to share insights and best practices from a variety of perspectives. Participants benefit from peer-to-peer sharing and a connection with other professionals. The goal of this initiative: Everyone walks away with the best ideas and solutions unique to our challenges as leaders in our industry.
