Who We Are

WIN Today

WIN today represents the interests and professional experiences of each of its members. We have successfully designed and delivered many events globally, collaborated with other infrastructure bodies and networks, and have provided mentoring programmes and opportunities for our members. WIN’s continual growth is demonstrated by our presence and credibility in the market. As we look forward to the year ahead, we are making an investment in discovering new ways to connect with you, meet your needs and attract, retain and develop women in the infrastructure sector.

Our Mission

The Women’s Infrastructure Network (“WIN”) is an inclusive global network operating in the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom.

We support over 3000 members and growing through networking events and development programs.

WIN began as an informal community in which women in the public and private infrastructure industry sectors in the New York and Washington, D.C. areas could meet, exchange ideas and experiences, and help shape the infrastructure agenda in the United States. The community grew rapidly and Chapters have now been  established in the western United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.

Within each Chapter there are a number of regional groups to support infrastructure communities, networking opportunities and deliver events with both local, national and global significance. As part of our inclusive policy we do not have subscription charges to become a member and attend our regular quarterly events.

We are proud to offer such a diverse network across the entire spectrum of participants that is open to women at all levels working in the infrastructure industry across all disciplines from government, industry, infrastructure and pension funds, multilaterals, commercial and investment banks, accounting and law firms, financial advisory and engineering and construction firms.

WIN’s mission remains to help women to emerge as leaders in this growing field in which historically women have been under represented and to:

  • Facilitate professional development, advancement and support of women in the infrastructure sector;
  • Promote the infrastructure sector as a long-term career option with a supportive industry-recognized network for women;
  • Create a strong network of contacts to foster professional opportunities and facilitate collaboration between the public and private sectors; and
  • Provide junior women access to senior practitioners to develop career opportunities and mentoring relationships.

WIN intends to further this mission through creating opportunities for women in infrastructure to engage in dialogue, discussion and professional development seminars as well as to meet informally and develop personal friendships.
