THANK YOU to Community Businesses Supporting STEM on the Space Coast!


People do business with people they know, like and trust. Companies don’t make decisions, people do. WIDSC can help you develop professional networks that can open doors for you that otherwise could not be opened.


We encourage collaboration among our members to enhance our community through a myriad of projects including Science, Technology, Engineering,  and Math (STEM) outreach and support. Enjoy WID fellowship.


Women In Defense, an affiliate of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA), welcomes men and women from all facets of the community that supports defense, industry, academia, and the military services.

      All donations and event proceeds go to support STEM Scholarships.

Serving the Needs of our Space Coast Florida Community

“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.”

–Karen Gregory, Founding President, Space Coast Chapter, January 2013
