Women in FM
Building Networks, Supporting, Encouraging, Developing, Diversity and Inclusivity
Theme for 2017 - Leading from the Future!
The WIFM SIG has quickly established itself as a group that listens to the needs of its members and the wider BIFM membership, and produces events and programmes to support them. The SIG prides itself on demonstrating BIFM values and competences, and encourages inclusivity for both men and women to focus on their continuing professional development - especially by supporting each other.
By being innovative with events held by the group, WIFM has created a programme that listens to and addresses the needs of SIG members, and also allows an element of networking, and more importantly, fun. Our ongoing events programme now consists of both a series of forums, held in London, and a national programme, in partnership with the BIFM Regions, taking WIFM to a wider audience.
What’s in it for me as a member of the WiFM SIG?
WIFM aims to be an inclusive and supportive environment, so if you have any suggestions for us to further improve please do not hesitate to get in touch. In return, WIFM will help you to:
• Raise your profile in the industry
• Give and seek advice
• Share successes and learn from other's experience
• Hear about opportunities – allows for word-of-mouth jobs to reach you
• Grow in confidence
• A chance to give something back to the profession

Join the Women in FM SIG or our LinkedIn page (BIFM Women in FM) and you will receive advance notification about all our events. If you have not yet been to one of our events, why not make a commitment to come to our next one; committee members will be there to offer a friendly face, they can introduce you to other members and help you make the most of your membership.
I look forward to seeing you at one of our forthcoming events; please get in touch if you have any comments or questions about WIFM.
