WIFI Local Chapters

Women In The Footwear Industry’s Local Chapters

There are ten WIFI chapters across the country in cities that have a concentration of footwear companies and/or a large footwear employee population.  Each chapter is led by a pair of co-chairs who help to bring women in footwear together to connect, socialize, and learn, and each chapter has approximately two events per year.

Below are the WIFI chapters and the women who lead them. To register for a specific local chapter, please click on the button below, then select the city that’s near you.
