For over 30 years, WHF has fostered career growth among professionals in the financial services, housing finance, and housing industries by providing a forum for ongoing education, networking, information exchange, and professional development.
Membership in WHF is open to women and men that have a broad range of professional responsibilities in areas related to housing and financial services. Our members come from Congressional staffs, federal regulatory agencies, trade associations, government-sponsored enterprises, law, accounting and consulting firms, financial services providers, academia, and other public and private sector entities. Also, you do not need to be a Washington, DC metro area resident to become a member and benefit from WHF membership.
Through your participation in WHF events and its other benefits, WHF can enhance every stage of your career. Members are actively encouraged to participate in standing committees, and other activities. Participation in the committees provide opportunities for further education, professional enrichment, and leadership enhancement.
If you're at the pinnacle of your career, you can share insights with others in similar positions, participate in symposia and informed policy discussions, build new skills, and scout new talent. If you're starting out in your career, you'll be able to explore new job opportunities, learn more about your field, and build a professional network that will be of benefit to you throughout your career. As a member of WHF, you will be able to build a broad base of contacts within your industry and other industries.
In addition, you will have the opportunity to give back to your community by volunteering your time and expertise through the WHF Foundation. Founded in 1997, the foundation’s mission is to: “help women and their families in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area by providing charitable services and educational activities primarily in the fields of housing and finance”.
