About Us

Founded in 2016, WIN: Women in Innovation is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded to close the gender gap in innovation. WIN provides action-oriented programming, tools and resources, and a high-impact community designed for women (and anyone identifying as a woman) employed in innovation jobs in professional services firms, Fortune 500 corporations and across the startup ecosystem. 

Inspired by an insight that women are incredible innovators, WIN is focused on amplifying the role of women in designing a better future for everyone. Women are currently underrepresented in innovation business leadership and thought leadership across the entire professional journey. Only 25% of top innovation firms are led by women. Only 16% of top innovation books on Amazon are written by women. The upward professional trajectory of women in innovation jobs is negatively impacted by a lack of formalized training in innovation, absence of vetted and centralized resources, and limited access to sponsorship and mentorship opportunities. The innovation industry is driven by fierce competition, creating systemic industry challenges and barriers for women to collaborate, offer support, and learn from one another. These dynamics prevent women in innovation from reaching the highest levels of professional influence and authority in the field of innovation.

WIN pioneered a unique and effective solution to the problem through its robust and holistic offerings. WIN Monthly Programming is delivered by leading innovation experts from Fortune 500, startups, and innovation and design firms to provide training on skills necessary to excel in innovation. WIN Salon Series, the quarterly invite-­only gatherings of women in C-­suite and executive innovation positions, is geared towards formulating constructive solutions to industry challenges. WIN Mentorship, a curated peer-to-peer mentorship program, enables opportunities to nurture powerful, non­-competitive, and supportive relationships amongst women at similar phases in their professional journey.
