Creating a Flourishing Future

WIN has organized 6 conferences in Japan. This year we expect an increased presence of participants from nearby Asian countries and the event is gaining in presence in the entire region. It is an important time to connect with dynamic women and men conscious of these issues. It is important to connect as our authentic selves in a global setting and in cooperation.

The overall vision is to develop, promote, inspire and model a global, authentic and feminine leader. And to remember that each and every one of us holds tremendous power that is exponentially grown when linked together with others. It is in the spirit of collaboration and global understanding that we meet to look at how to shape the future by taking the next step, a future that will benefit everyone.

Join hundreds of leaders from numerous different countries to look at how to shape a future that benefits all. Top business leaders, NGOs, activists and politicians meet in a colourful and diverse setting, integrating the divine feminine with modern business practices and tools. We inspire and are inspired as we accelerate the empowerment of more women across the globe.

Our vision is to create a future where we all flourish and we model, empower, develop and connect leaders in a global, authentic and feminine way. Through world-class plenary sessions, practical workshops, bench-marking forums and coaching – we provide communities, companies and individual leaders the possibility to grow and contribute to a world in which we all flourish.

This event will provide you with inspiration, knowledge, practical tools and contacts to help you succeed and prepare for the future. It will help you lead the way and support others that do so too. WIN will inspire you and accompany you on your journey as an integrated global, authentic and feminine leader.

Becoming a part of the Japan WINConference also gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in an exchange of best practices with companies embracing diversity, initiating inclusive cultures, and where you can find women leading the way in creating the future.
