About the Committee

WIN primarily focuses on the promotion and preservation of the rights and interests of women globally-through exciting and impactful projects, programs, teleconferences, policy initiatives, publications, communication and outreach channels-within the aims and objectives of the Section. Our membership includes both women and men, lawyers and non-lawyer associates. We warmly welcome the participation of all our members whilst extending an open invitation to join our Steering Group and become actively involved if you have not already done so.

WIN Regional Liaisons

Relying on the enthusiasm of its growing membership, the Committee strives to expand not just numerically, but also geographically and culturally -with the aid of various regional liaisons in cities across the globe. These liaisons act as WIN contacts -periodically organizing WIN events in their localities for WIN and non-WIN members alike, thereby offering excellent opportunities for networking and maximal global impact of WIN's objectives. Events planned are often based on United Nations Observances within the aims/interests of the Committee and are implemented in collaboration with members' external contacts and entities.

WIN is proud of its Regional Liaisons! If you are interested in becoming a WIN liaison within your jurisdiction, do please let us know.
