About the Committee

The Women’s Interest Network (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 while extending an open invitation to actively join our Steering Group and become a contributing member if you have not already done so.

WIN relies 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 Representatives in cities across the globe. These Member Representatives act as WIN contacts periodically organizing WIN events in their local cities for WIN and non-WIN members alike, thereby offering excellent opportunities for networking and maximizing global impact of WIN objectives. Events planned are often based on United Nations Observances within the aims and interests of the Committee and are implemented in collaboration with Member’s external contacts and entities. WIN is very proud of its Regional Representatives. If you are interested in becoming a WIN Representative within your jurisdiction please let us know.

Monthly Committee Conference Calls for the 2016-2017 ABA year are scheduled for 12pm Eastern Time on the last Wednesday of the month. Please mark your calendar for Wednesday, September 28, 2016 at 12pm ET to join the first call of the new ABA year. Please join the listserv to receive the meeting agenda, minutes, and call-in details. Our conference calls are open to men and women, lawyers and non-lawyers globally. We look forward to your participation.
