Women's Empowerment School

Aug 6, 2018

Do you ever feel like the Ugly Duckling? Like something is off about the environment you’re working in? What if we could create inclusive workplaces where everyone felt like a Swan most of the time? Where we could use our intuition AND manage a spreadsheet? Where everyone felt safe enough to speak up?

Kristin Engvig is the founder and CEO of the WINConference, a globally recognized network and resource for women working internationally. A prominent thought leader in the evolution of the female leadership journey, Kristin created WIN to inspire women worldwide in becoming agents of possibility and to bring a more feminine, global and sustainable vision into the workplace and the world at large.

On the inaugural episode of Women’s Empowerment School, Kristin sits down with Sylvia to share the origin story of WIN and explain how the principles of inclusiveness and choice inspired her to start the organization. Kristin discusses the art of creating a world through the WINConference, the criteria for its partners and corporate sponsors, and the depth of relationships cultivated at the event. She also offers insight on maintaining a state of mindfulness and managing energy effectively in the midst of a busy, global lifestyle. Listen in for Kristin’s take on the evolution of companies as women AND men wake up to the urgency of a world that values generosity, caring and empathy—and learn how to fight for a world that works for everyone!
