About Us

Mission Statement: To build a community of women who encourage and support each other both professionally and personally.  


The Women’s Interactive Network (WIN) offers an opportunity to meet women whom are successful in all aspects of business, from the corporate ranks to entrepreneurs. Every meeting and event allows ample opportunity to hone networking skills while enjoying the company of business-minded women. 


WIN recognizes the power and importance of mentoring as it relates to personal and professional growth. New incoming members may be matched to an existing member , upon request, who is eager to share their own professional experiences. The mentors and mentees make a commitment to meet at least once a month and connect weekly through email or by phone. The mentoring committee has created a formal program that provides both the mentors and mentees with the resources they need to develop a positive and engaging mentoring relationship that promotes both personal and professional development. 


WIN encourages professional development through its programming. Each monthly meeting, or webinar includes speakers who will teach you new leadership, marketing, financial planning and interpersonal skills. Participating on any of WIN’s committees also provides a great opportunity to learn new skills while forming closer relationships with other members. Learn new, marketable skills within the event planning, finance, marketing, membership, mentoring, programming, and nominating committees.

Organization History

WIN-Pittsburgh was established in 2006 as a networking organization for professional women in the Greater Pittsburgh area.  In June 2011, WIN-Pittsburgh was re-organized under its current leader, Dawn Pomaybo, to better serve the community of women that so loyally supported the organization during its early years.


As WIN-Pittsburgh developed into a strong and vibrant local organization, it became apparent that our content and structure could easily be carried into other cities. Our members expressed the desire to network with other professional women across the nation. Moving forward, the directors of WIN-Pittsburgh put together a vision and plan to expand the reach of WIN, thereby creating WIN-National, the National Association of the Women’s Interactive Network…where professional women network with a purpose.

WIN-Sarasota was launched in 2016 to serve the women of the Gulf Coast.
