“There are associations and groups out there that make our industry better. WINiT was created in order to make the people in our industry better.”
Director, Global Travel GPO/Executive Travel Services / Oracle
WINiT is a vital resource for career development in the travel industry. The support that WINiT provides, in particular, its focus on leadership development for women travel professionals, provides significant value to the industry in helping us collaboratively invest in our future business leaders.
“WINiT’s mission of supporting the development and promotion of women at all levels in the business travel industry aligns with our own company vision—which goes well beyond products and profits. Championing the advancement of women is one step in building the foundation for our future goals of positive social impact and global business growth.”
“WINiT is exactly what the travel industry needs – a strong and positive voice representing a large part of the sector, empowering and supporting women at all stages of their career within the industry.”
At Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT), approximately 72% of our 19,000* employees are women, and therefore it is important and fitting that we support WINiT’s mission and overall objectives. The travel industry is all about connecting people but it’s crucial that we support and enable our own people too; WINiT is striving to do just that. By supporting WINiT, we are supporting the development of important goals which will have positive social and global business impact for future generations

As someone who has been at the center of promoting women’s leadership, I see WINiT as a driver of change. WINiT is about action and impact–and, therefore, results.
