WIN provides our network of professional women with an opportunity to engage in multiple levels of personal and professional development. Our educational programs include training programs, panel discussions, ebooks, and many other useful tools to help our members find the right career, the first time. Complimentary tools and resources guide members in their vision for their future.
Sponsored members will receive full complimentary access to a career pathways tool; providing an in-depth planning and personal assessment used as an educational and career planning tool to help discover what career possibilities best suit them. Research shows when you find the right career match, your probability for success and satisfaction increases dramatically.
Most people can expect to make many changes during their working lives. We prepare women to be a step ahead of everyone else by providing key knowledge that drives a quality, core education or directs them to transition to a better, happier career path. We will provide tools to help them gather the information needed for a qualified resume that will help the sponsored member to stand out from the rest.
