Business as usual is no longer working. We have known that for a while.

With the world going head first into turbulence, we notice that companies and individuals are looking for sustainable solutions to bring more feminine, global and conscious ways to workplaces, communities and life.

WIN provides an internationally recognized platform inspiring and engaging modern leaders to find these solutions and become fit for the future.

Being on the forefront of a more conscious, creative and connected way, WIN has facilitated new ways of working and leading for more than two decades. Giving a glimpse into the future, each WIN leadership event provides thought leadership and a collaborative environment for hundreds of leaders to network mindfully and address real issues of business and society with a deep human touch.

WIN presents a chance for your organization to make a difference in the world by joining WINs premium authentic leadership development journey, meeting and global movement.

Women (and men) attending this conference unleash their potential and their ideas in an uninhibited manner, and if we could create the same energy and output in our professional environments, the world would be better for it”

- Josefine van Zanten, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, IMD

“We need a new form of leadership based on deeper targets, more flexibility and ability to collaborate. All qualities that lead us to the strength and natural leadership skills of women.”
