We are looking to establish a dynamic and supportive network that not only celebrates the achievements of women in EMS, but also inspires and mentors the next generation of female professionals. By doing so, we hope to transform the landscape of the industry, making it more diverse, innovative, and successful.


WiES believes through the four pillars below, we will be able to influence and impact the lives of thousands of women working in the emergency medical services industry.


  1. Empowerment: We celebrate women in emergency medical services and create an inclusive environment for women to be their true selves. Women will grow their personal and professional networks through self-empowerment and mutual support.
  2. Networking: By providing unique opportunities for women to connect and learn from others, they will be able to create strong and supportive networks amongst peers to gain knowledge and advance their careers.
  3. Mentorship: Women will develop relationships to mentor and empower women in the emergency medical services industry. Women will feel confident to advocate for themselves and achieve excellence in their careers.
  4. Education: Create high-quality learning opportunities for women to build successful careers in the evolving emergency medical services industry. These educational opportunities will focus on professional development, self-advocacy, and technical expertise.

These pillars all support workforce development including the improvement of awareness of opportunities in the industry and retaining women in the industry.
