Women’s Global Leadership Journey
WIN Italy Hub

WIN in Italy

WIN was born in Milan in 1997 and has been inspired not only by the country’s entrepreneurial attitudes, ease of connecting, beauty and culture – but also by Leonardo Da Vinci and its other inventors and creative people throughout time. WIN promotes the idea of the modern Renaissance women and men – those who bring all of themselves into what they do and can be more than just one thing: a business professional and an opera singer, someone both spiritual and practical, a daughter and a scientist, evolving with her individuality and forming part of an interconnected system too.

WIN has also held 9 of the 21 Global WINConferences in Italy as the organization has felt is has provided nurturing ground for connectivity, learning, growth, beauty, creativity, consciousness, dialogue and evolution. 

Working together with many of the partner organizations, WIN intends to gather the alumni of the Global WINConference as well as others who wish to be a part of it to expand the WIN-WIN vision to an increasing number of people. The WIN Italy Hub will gather 2-3 times a year to expand WIN’s vision, engage in initiatives and promote the WIN values. At times, the meetings may be dinner, a circle of sharing, a talk or a gathering for input and support to the Global WINConference. 

WIN Italy is coordinated by Kristin Engvig and Marcello Presicci. If you are interested in being a part of expanding WIN’s vision and become a part of the community in Italy, please email
