Women in Newport Networking



About WiNN


In 2015, Newport Beach Mayor Diane Dixon and several community leaders developed a forum called Women in Newport Networking (WiNN) to encourage more Newport Beach women to serve local civic and community groups.

The WiNN planning committee is comprised of Mayor Dixon, Debra Allen, Robyn Grant, Kathy Harrison and Sarah Hostetler.
