Welcome WID Members and Friends!

Meghan Seidman, President of WIDIt is my honor and privilege to serve as President of Women in Development of Greater Boston (WID). Since 1980, WID has been creating opportunities for members to connect, providing professional development, and carving out space for development professionals to share experiences and strategies to advance their careers.

This year marks WID's 35th anniversary! We have so much to celebrate as we honor this milestone. More than three decades ago, six women gathered together to build a network to support women in the development field. Now, we proudly provide a calendar of sessions and workshops for 700+ members, including some of the leading senior development professionals in the greater Boston area, who are committed to sharing their own knowledge and experience with fellow members.

Whether attending a Brown Bag Lunch, a members-only networking "round robin" evening social, or hearing a leading philanthropist or industry expert speak at our Fall or Spring program, you have a unique opportunity to connect with fellow development professionals across a variety of industries and fields. Explore your own development career path by becoming involved with one of our many active committees or by serving as a speaker.

If you are not yet a member, now is the time to sign-up! Membership in Women in Development is an investment in yourself and your career. Our mission is to promote and support the advancement of women in the development profession, and our goal is as important today as it was to the six women around the table 35 years ago. 

Warmest regards,

Meghan Seidman
President, Women in Development of Greater Boston
