Our Story

​Women in the Fastener Industry (WIFI), began on the social media site LinkedIn, as a way to connect women in the fastener business through the web, social media, and trade shows. The group was started by Pam Berry, Executive Vice President and co-owner of Advance Components, and Mary Lou Aderman, president of The Aderman Group, who worked together to create a space for women to empower each other and advance in the industry.

WIFI’s mission is to provide opportunities for women in the fastener industry at all levels of experience, to unite in order to educate, mentor and encourage one another, for the express purpose of advancing women in the fastener industry.   

 

Established in 2009, we’re an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support.
