Our WashU Women Innovate (WIN) campaign celebrates women who have brought their innovative and entrepreneurial ideas to life through their affiliation with WashU.



WashU Women Innovate (WIN) shares inspiring stories about female students, faculty, and alumnae who are blazing new paths across a range of industries. WIN’s November 2018 launch was just the beginning, and we continued to spotlight female innovators throughout the year, sharing their accomplishments via the university’s social media channels, the Record, and Fuse.


WIN’s homepage added stories regularly about WashU women entrepreneurs.

WIN’s homepage was part of the Fuse website, where WashU-affiliated entrepreneurs could share their stories, offer tips, and network with each other.


The multimedia team at MarComm created this video to introduce the WIN campaign.


Our stories were accompanied by photography that highlights the success of WashU women entrepreneurs.
