The Global Women Inventors & Innovators Network (GlobalWIIN) formally known as GWIIN is an independent not-for-profit organisation dedicated to assisting and advancing women with bright inventions and innovations so that they can achieve success in the global marketplace.
In recent years, GlobalWIIN’s ethos is to mobilize expertise and put forward evidence that play a fundamental role in shaping practices within the workforce and marketplace. GlobalWIIN is a network that promotes the role ingenious women play in bringing necessary change and plays a nurturing role that help spread ideas and encourages action.
GlobalWIIN also focusses on industries where specific attention is needed for innovative strategies and knowledge transfer that assist in the increase in percentage of women in leadership positions in traditional male dominated industries.
GlobalWIIN has created the opportunities for Think-Tank Conferences with Learning and Development platforms in four Key Industries :
TheGlobalWIIN recognises the value of critical thinking and provides a platform for innovation and promotes the need to introduce new ideas, expand the scope of the debate and of the participants by creating think tank like conferences.
Bearing in mind that many industry areas still need to take on gender diversity as a real action point rather than a tick box function – GlobalWIIN provides a helping hand that help women promote their ideas so that other young women will be inspired to follow in their footsteps and consider careers associated with being inventive and innovative.
Established in 1998, GlobalWIIN formally known as GWIIN and its team of experts have helped to shine the spotlight on the creativity of hundreds of women in Africa, Europe, Middle East, Asia and North America. Working with governments, leading industry experts, voluntary organisations, educational establishments and the private sector, it has held awards events, roundtables and seminars and provided information and guidance to support the women on their journey to success.
GlobalWIIN, founded by Dr Bola Olabisi, was set up in recognition of the challenges that women face in bringing commercially viable products to market. The path to navigating success can be difficult and there are many pitfalls to avoid. GlobalWIIN helps women recognise a clearer path and understand the steps they need to reach their goals.
Many women inventors have become well deserved recipients of Awards by GlobalWIIN and have continued on their journey on to tremendous success.
