About Us

Win-Win Strategies connects the power of business with the deep assets of women’s funds and organizations to empower women globally. 

We leverage the expertise and resources of local women’s organizations and corporates to co-create empowerment programs that can achieve deep impact, broad scale and a high return. 

Our vision is a future where every woman and girl can realize her rights and access opportunities.

Our Story

Win-Win Strategies was launched in September 2016 to expand, enhance and operationalize the work of the Win-Win Coalition, a network of 30 companies, foundations, women’s funds and organizations and individual "bridge-builders" dedicated to creating collaboration and action to empower women globally. 

The Win-Win Coalition grew out of a cross-sector meeting held in Amsterdam in January 2015 to discuss new strategies for collaboration to advance women’s rights in light of the growing interest in the private and public sectors in programs to empower women and girls.  

Participants recognized that there was a need to create new spaces for learning, knowledge production, development of relationships, and mobilization of resources, not only among companies, corporate foundations, women's funds and grassroots women's organizations, but also with INGOs, fund advisors, private foundations and the public sector.

The Win-Win Coalition was established to be one of those new spaces, with initial funding from the Oak Foundation and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and subsequently from the Foundation for a Just Society.
