List of Female Professional Associations & Organizations
Female Professional Associations & Organizations are typically not-for-profit with the mission of serving the interests of female professionals across all industries.
I urge all female professionals to join one or more Professional Associations & Organizations. Becoming a member is usually pretty simple. Most associations require an application and annual membership dues. You may need to undergo specialized training and re-certification to stay active.
Make sure to conduct your due diligence and find women’s professional associations that are a match based on your industry specialization, experience level, and geographic location. After you become a member, remember to include this information on your Resume and LinkedIn profile.
