2021 Renaissance Women Leadership Journey

Network with purpose and passion, meaning and joy.
Find your authentic power and accelerate your impact

Become a part of the WIN Global Leadership Journey as a Renaissance Leader.

You are the one. Whether you are a company employee, a member of a women’s network, a president of a gender association, a consultant and a WIN alumni or new to WIN, become a part of the WIN journey of discovery.

Joining is a magnificent way for you to connect, learn and grow as a modern Renaissance woman - authentic, feminine and global. Some of the meetings are followed up with deeper circles of learning, others stand independently, typically including mentoring circles.

Clarify Your Purpose & Build Community - Asia Edition | 25 March 2021

This is an important time in history. As we increase our impact in society, at work and at home, coming together and evolving as a community gives us an amazing sense of energy and belonging. For this meeting, we will come together to look deeper into how we wish to create this year with purpose and joy. As a group of inspiring women, we will look at what lights us up, what stimulates us and makes us feel alive. What do you feel called to do by the world inside and outside of you and how do we find that alignment? By sharing with each other in mentoring circles, we feel uplifted, in touch with our creative power and able to move forward with passion, clarity and joy.
