International Women in Nursing (IWIN)

"The Great Resignation is a great opportunity to plan your path to the C-suite."

- Dr. Tiffany Love

International Women in Nursing (IWIN) is the first career development program implemented by the Love Leadership Foundation. The purpose of this program is to educate and train diverse nurse leaders, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, disability or veteran’s status, to assess and address inequities within the healthcare industry, as well as workforce.

The Love Leadership Foundation has identified a world-class education and training model that incorporates essential learning opportunities to develop nurse executives who are experts in healthcare leadership.

“I have also incorporated the mentoring and networking opportunities that led to my success and used them create the IWIN program because no one should have to do this on their own,” said Dr. Love. “My guiding light comes from the simple words that my mentor, Dr. Julie Silver, always said – ‘lead when no one else is’ – this has been my call-to-action and what I tell my mentees.”
