Women in Homeland Security - Southern California

Women in Homeland Security


Working Together

WHS SoCal is a nonprofit organization for women in homeland security who are committed to combating the threat of terrorism and mitigating the impacts of natural disasters. We are a community of trailblazing women who come together through networking, professional development, and philanthropic opportunities.

Our Year One events have featured experts from the FBI, UNICEF, California Governor's Office of Emergency Services, Homeland Security Advisory Council and the City of Los Angeles Fire Department. And we are just getting started.



We network

Our members represent a broad spectrum, including law enforcement, emergency management, crisis management, cyber security, counter-terrorism and disaster preparedness and response.


We learn together

We foster a collaborative environment for women to learn about the discipline and share best practices in the prevention, protection and response to any type of incident.


we give back

Our goal is to have each WHS event tied to a philanthropic cause be it to help support relief efforts underway, mentorship of women new to our field, or sponsor of response/readiness organizations.
