About WiNN

In 2015, several community leaders developed a forum called Women in Newport Networking (WiNN) to encourage Newport Beach women to engage in, and serve as members of, City boards, committees and commissions, and civic and community organizations. Not long after, the focus of  WiNN was broadened and the forums and events are designed to create awareness among Newport Beach men and women of opportunities to serve the City of Newport Beach and how they can be actively involved in their community.
