The Initiators

In April 2017 the W20 Summit took place in Berlin under the patronage of Chancellor Dr Angela Merkel. It had high-profile celebrity support and a massive media response. Inspired by the summit, four women from the Rhine/Ruhr region created this initiative aiming to promote the long-term promotion of women at the top level.

„IWiL ist eine einzigartige Initiative von Spitzenpersönlichkeiten für Top-Frauen, die auf Basis eines Cross-Mentorings ein starkes, unternehmensübergreifendes Netzwerk bietet. Programme für Talente gibt es viele, aber keins, das sich gezielt an die Frauen eine oder zwei Ebenen unterhalb des Top-Managements richtet.“
