Women in the Fastener Industry (WIFI) is a non-profit organization that provides mentoring, networking and educational opportunities for women employed in the industrial fastener industry. Through donations and corporate sponsorships they fund their scholarships and networking events.


Women in the Fastener Industry invites all women who are employed in the industrial fastener industry to join them as a professional network, representing fastener women everywhere. As a member of WIFI, you will become an advocate for other women within the fastener industry, assisting with referrals, mentoring and professional support in addition to having access to networking and educational opportunities.


Why should you consider joining? Here are some of the great benefits to a membership:



When joining WIFI, you will become eligible for one of the available scholarships:

  • The Ann Wolz Bisgyer Scholarship pays tuition to the Fastener Training Institute, the premier educational institute in the fastener industry.
  • The Edith Cameron Scholarship provides funds to travel and attend the annual National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo in Las Vegas, the largest convention in the industry.
  • Apply for scholarship



Whether you are newer to the industry or a seasoned professional, mentorship opportunities are available and encouraged. This is an opportunity to welcome and support fellow fastener women through guidance, knowledge, growth and community.
