Whether you're a seasoned veteran of WIN or a new member ready to get involved, Women Opening Doors for Women (WODW) is the event for you! WODW brings women of different backgrounds together to learn from each other's experiences, exchange valuable information and advice, and help each other along the road to success.
What is WODW? WODW commemorates the founding of WIN over 29 years ago when a group of women came together around a dining room table to help each other achieve professional success. The group committed to forming WIN to create opportunities for both young and established women to continue meeting, mentoring, and sharing resources with other like-minded women.
WODW consists of two parts: a networking reception with over 200 professional women followed by 20+ simultaneous dinner parties in private homes and businesses throughout DC. These dinners feature lively discussions on topics ranging from achieving success at work to mindful meditation to breaking the glass ceiling.
First, we'll meet at the National Union Building for a reception to honor our Karen Mulhauser Award recipient and our Network of the Year award winner while enjoying dessert and wine. Afterward, we'll break off to attend one of 20+ engaging, thought-provoking, and fun dinner party discussions around the city.
WIN welcomes and encourages male colleagues and friends to attend our networking reception and keynote address, but to celebrate WIN's mission, the dinners are reserved for those who identify as women, femme, or gender non-conforming.
