The feminine is out of balance with the masculine in politics, business, society and our own lives. This imbalance holds consequences for the planet, for organizations and for human well-being.

Can you imagine it differently? I can too.

Women’s’ empowered and inspired leadership is the key to a sustainable future and wellbeing for all. When we feel meaningful working to make the world a better place, embracing our beauty and our power, our spirituality and our practicality our intuition and our intellect, embodying our values and feeling a bit more soulful in our leadership and when we do so together we not only shine, we move mountains. A healthy tomorrow depends on women’s hopes and dreams becoming realized, no longer hidden in any drawer, underfunded, undervalued or put aside. Join me in accelerating our hearing, seeing, valuing and realizing women’s authentic contribution, visions and ways as we evolve our world to one that works for all and go from meeting to movement. In fact, join me as we celebrate the feminine in women and in men as we assure balance with the healthy masculine, and as such can accelerate our creating a world in which we all flourish.

It is created for modern Renaissance women and conscious men as well as the organizations they are a part of. 

WIN is not only about the magic energy, the creative approach or the ease of connecting, it is about stepping into a more feminine frequency, enabling you to see what could be possible, and then getting on with it through conscious business and practical application. We share stories, evolve practices, learn new skills, mentor and reveal the powerful you - the unique person who leads organizations, communities and individuals towards a bright future – and who does so together with other.

WIN inspires conscious women to step into decision making roles, progress their careers, excel in politics and business while encouraging artists and activists as well as those at new frontiers. 

Trailblazers and leaders on a journey of growth come to WIN to tap into the unique energy and the network of influence that facilitates their work in the world. Likewise, companies set to create thriving, sustainable and gender-balanced organizations with high values come to WIN to expand and implement new strategies. At WIN, we work to develop ourselves from the inside, expand our unique path, contribute with authenticity and heart and integrate feminine values with the healthy masculine, supporting each other in making dreams come true. We also know it is not only about women, nor about the feminine. 

We work globally, with men and across generations to create worlds, work and lives that benefit all. We connect. We integrate. We find common ground and what lights us up.

WIN’s inspiring plenary experiences, interactive workshops, wellness sessions and mindful networking ensures that everyone grows. 

Clearly, solving the many challenges of our time requires our compassionate leadership and our vital passion to sustain it. We are all agents of possibility. We know we are part of an interdependent system and that how each and every one of us contributes matters.

Now is our time. Become a part of it!
