2015 was an exciting year for Women in Investing Network of Philadelphia (WIN) with a full year of programs from educational to career development to networking and social events. Many of our corporate sponsors generously partnered with us to offer speakers and facilities to support a wide range of programs including Women Run Funds, Values Based Investing – ESG, SRI and Impact Investing and a Conversation about your Career Path. We expanded our Community Outreach activities and participated in a WHYY telethon and two Cradles to Crayon events as well as sponsoring several networking events including the ever popular summer social, golf and holiday party.
The program committees have been busy planning the 2016 calendar starting with our January 28th members-only event. This year it will be a Spanish wine and tapas tasting at Twenty-two Gallery in Philadelphia with Vinocity, a local sommelier. The 2016 program line-up includes industry insight and experiences including presentation skills and vocal impact, private equity trends, technology and risk, effective board and investment committee leadership, community outreach programs, wine tasting, speed networking and various social and networking events.
WIN would not be as successful without the many members who volunteer for the various committees and who attend the events. If you are looking for a way to expand your professional profile and personal branding in the investment community, we encourage you to volunteer for one of the committees and to attend WIN events.
Memberships expired on December 31, 2015 and can be renewed directly on the WIN website. Consider renewing your membership today so that you can participate in the January members-only event.
We look forward to seeing you at a WIN event in 2016.
