WIN’s mission is to promote gender equity, diversity, inclusion, and empowerment for all in the SU community, within the SU staff, and across all programs. Our vision is to create a global community of women and female-identifying people who have access to the development and tools that enable them to reach their highest potential, setting the standard for gender equity and empowerment in all of SU’s work.

WIN advocates for SU to create and maintain an inclusive and equitable culture, with a flexible and empowering workplace and a diverse and representative workforce and community. WIN was launched in 2016 as an employee resource group for staff and faculty at SU, then re-launched in 2018 as a global women’s initiative to include our community (Chapters, Country Partners, Global Impact Challenges, Summits, and alumni around the world).

Why WIN Exists

  1. Promote gender equity, diversity, and inclusion by creating opportunities that connect, uplift, enable and amplify the work and voices of the women and female-identifying people in the Singularity University community.
  2. Create a culture where gender equity is at the forefront of everything that SU does, promoting opportunities and services for the women and female-identifying people of SU to connect with each other, grow, and reach their highest potential.
  3. Create and communicate initiatives, actions, and results of programs and policies focused on empowering, connecting, and highlighting women and female-identifying people of the SU community to all alumni and members of the SU community.

The Leaders of WIN

The Women’s Impact Network is co-chaired by Molly Pyle, Stacy Maldonado and Tammy Lakes. They’re supported by a team of dedicated SU employees who work together as thought leaders and content producers in support of WIN initiatives. All of this is done in addition to everyday roles and responsibilities. WIN is a working example of what can be done when people within an organization step up to challenge the status quo and actively create the positive change they wish to see in the world.

As a member of the Women’s Impact Network (WIN), you will receive emails from us about upcoming opportunities and events (both in-person and virtual) that will connect you to SU and current issues and topics the Women’s Impact Network is focused on. WIN members are not bystanders but rather they are passionate people of action – people of all genders are invited to partner with WIN to put on an event (a panel, a networking event, a Women’s or Allie’s circle, or more!) or propose a topic to be discussed virtually via webinar. WIN empowers members with toolkits and templates to be agents of equity and impact wherever you are, no matter your gender or any other identifier – if you are committed to creating a more equitable world, we are with you on that mission, come on and join us.

Anyone who is aligned with WIN’s mission, vision, and values and wants to be part of building a more equitable future can be a part of WIN. The Women’s Impact Network is open and inclusive to people of all gender identifications and expressions. We welcome those who are passionate, inspired and driven to increase gender equity in the world.
