The Space Coast Chapter of Women In Defense was founded January 21, 2013.  The Chapter is a source for networking, professional development and mentoring of other women leaders on the east coast of Florida.

“The Florida Space Coast is a unique area with several rapidly expanding national defense industries and a very prevalent military presence.   By forming a Space Coast Chapter, it will provide networking and professional development opportunities to promote the role of women in national defense and security, to support military service members, and to encourage partnerships within the local contractor community, defense industry and military personnel.”

In our third full year of operations, we have grown substantially thanks to those that share their time supporting this organization.  I would like to acknowledge the special contributions of our founders and those that have served the organization–we are now positioned experience substantial growth.  I am honored to lead your organization and look forward to continue the march forward!

–Susan Glasgow, President, Space Coast Chapter, October 2016
