The Women’s Insolvency Network Australia (WINA) NSW is a newly incorporated association incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act 2009 (NSW).
WINA NSW’s objectives are to:
- Promote women in the insolvency, restructuring and related professions and enhance their professional status and reputation;
- Provide opportunities for the professional development of members in the insolvency and restructuring industry, particularly through networking, business development, self-development, educational and mentoring opportunities;
- Share interests, experience, expertise and business opportunities between members;
- Offer a forum for women for mentoring to ease the way for those new to the profession; and
- Form and maintain relationships with associations in other jurisdictions, both within Australia and internationally, with similar purposes and objects as the those outlined above.
We were previously known as the International Women’s Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation (NSW Branch) (IWIRC NSW), which was formed in December 1995 and since then has grown dramatically each year with an average of 120 corporate and individual members.
Through resolution of it’s members on 29 June 2015, IWIRC NSW was dissolved and WINA NSW was incorporated.
Our members come from a range of legal, accounting, banking and policy backgrounds and as such, the variety of functions we host each year provide participants in the restructuring and insolvency industry with fantastic networking opportunities.
Our focus to connect and promote women is evident in our exceptionally balanced male and female attendance at all our events.
