Founding Members of WIFLE

 

 

History



 

In 1977, the Inter-agency Committee for Women in Federal Law Enforcement (ICWIFLE) was launched by the U.S. Departments of Justice and Treasury to recruit and retain more women in Federal law enforcement.  ICWIFLE operated through June 1999 when the organization was formally incorporated as Women in Federal Law Enforcement, Inc. (WIFLE) by which the organization is known to this day. 

The WIFLE Foundation, Inc., established and incorporated in 2006, is the educational entity providing for the Annual Leadership Training and the Scholarship Programs. In 2011 the WIFLE Executive Leadership Institute (WELI) was founded to provide immersive leadership training sessions for GS Grades 13, 14, 15, and SES (and State, county and local equivalents) that is held in conjunction with the Annual Leadership Training Program.
