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 150 candidates and contributing to their campaigns. WIN relies upon membership, fundraising events and sponsors to make this possible.
Women have made strides in the workplace; we are leaders in our businesses, communities and homes. However, women are still underrepresented in elected office. Women are 51% of the voting population, yet hold a mere 20% of the public office positions. WIN is committed to changing that statistic.
As one of the only nonpartisan, non-issue-based political advocacy groups, WIN’s mission is to engage women in civic discourse, encourage women to run for office and endorse qualified women who choose to run.
