Working Together

Welcome to Women in Homeland Security – Southern California!  We are a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to providing a platform for women in our industry to build relationships, grow in expertise, and contribute to philanthropic causes.  We reach 300+ women in emergency management, fire, law enforcement, defense, crisis management, cyber security and more.  Since our founding, our events have featured experts from the FBI, UNICEF, California Governor's Office of Emergency Services, Homeland Security Advisory Council, American Red Cross, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Port of Los Angeles/Port of Long Beach and the City of Los Angeles Fire Department – with more to come. 

WHS is a great forum to raise up and support our exceptional peers – Trailblazers. Change Makers. Women.  So check out our rich community and join us.
