2020 Global WINConference


29 September - 2 October 2020 

The 2020 Global WINConference will take place online, potentially with a smaller in person meeting 

in either London or Geneva. We will then be back with a better than ever large-scale, in person event in 2021.

The WINConference provides inspiration, context, tools, knowledge and a generous network of support for women to contribute authentically, integrating their feminine values and global awareness into all that they do. It is the most innovative and interactive programme on leadership you will see this year, bringing together influential change-makers and pioneers to create a world in which we all flourish.

You Are The One


You want to be part of a larger shift in women's lives taking place on a global scale. You feel like widening your horizons, learning something new and creating a more gender-balanced world for future generations. You simply have a desire to be a part of it - now! Perhaps you work for a large company and have substantial leadership experience or, you have just started your own company and are wondering how to proceed. Perhaps you are in transition and curious about your next steps.


You will be in the right place.The conference will help you get up to speed on emerging trends in business, technology and society as well as the latest thinking on the future of work and careers, and new practices in individual growth. The conference is designed to help participants generate new awareness, skills and connections in an inspiring and nurturing environment, enabling them to accelerate their impact in the world, at work and in their lives.

At WIN we grow as conscious leaders and empower each other to create business with purpose and careers that matter.


“Every time I participate in the WINConference I come back feeling

I am participating in the making of a big change in the future of women".

- Lorella Zanardo, Women's Bodies (NGO)

A Unique Experience

"WIN gave me a deep understanding of the importance of sisterhood & femininity, which I have embraced 

along with being a manager. It is nice to know that women around the world experience the same challenges". 

Iris Rapoport Bar, Israel



“WIN has awakened again the passion for life in me as if I have been given water after days of long walk in a 

desert alone. I am a much stronger and better professional, friend and woman. I have started a new project, and to 

mentor and coach other women too, with the objective of helping them seize their strength and happiness” 

Yunji XU PhD, Senior Account Manager, Shell 



The WINConference is not only about connecting you to a magic energy and sense that everything is possible. It is about business, how to run the world and companies in a more integrated fashion, where women’s voices are heard and our common future is taken seriously. It is about realizing our individual and collective dreams.


WIN is a safe space where transformation becomes possible. In fact, for many it changes their lives. It may spark something in you that allows you to embark on a new journey or continue the one you are on with increased clarity and vitality. You learn to contribute new ideas with increased impact, take on deeper responsibility from new perspectives and find refreshed purpose to make things happen. WIN is concrete - it raises awareness and creates impact. Like a nourishing garden, it accelerates your growth and encourages you to give while growing.


WIN participants say they come back with:

  • Inspiration, a sense of calm, grace and clarity
  • The spark to start new projects and the readiness to take on new roles
  • An impactful community of support, meaningful connections and nourishment
  • Courage to make bolder decisions
  • Confidence to lead more holistically
  • Motivation to mentor other colleagues or your teams
  • The understanding that ‘I am enough’
  • The guts to take authentic action within your company, your community and for yourself
