Women in Numbers (WIN) is a nonpartisan organization established to engage, encourage and endorse qualified women to be elected to public office.
Since our founding in 1992, WIN has become a growing force by endorsing more than 100 candidates and contributing more than $225,000 to their campaigns.
WIN relies upon membership, fundraising events and sponsors to make this possible.

On Oct. 3, WIN honored Speaker Beth Harwell with the Trailblazer Award at its signature event, Dare to Soar. Four former WIN presidents and leaders in the community received the inaugural Legacy Award. On the 27th floor of Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis, the event overlooked a panorama of downtown Nashville.
Women in Numbers kicked off its first annual Sippin’ in September event this past Thursday, put on by the organization’s Junior Board members. Women and men of all ages gathered to network with one another, sip some wine and find out what WIN is all about. The event took place at the Jones Law Group rooftop patio, allowing for a night of conversation and fun looking out on downtown Nashville.
An all-female flag honors team raises the flag on Aug. 26, Women's Equality Day.
As the second African-American woman elected to the Tennessee General Assembly, the first female speaker pro tempore in the House, the longest-serving House member and speaker emeritus, Lois DeBerry was - in the words of Gov. Bill Haslam - "a history maker, a wonderful woman, a great legislator and a true friend."
THE JUNIOR BOARD THANKS THE SPONSORS OF SIPPIN' IN SEPTEMBER
Congratulations to Trailblazer Award recipient Speaker Beth Harwell, and Legacy Award recipients Sharon Bell, Connie Brookshire, Sherry Howell and Deborah Varallo
