Where women lead, change tends to follow.

The Women’s Institute for Alternative Development (WINAD) was founded in 1999 and introduced its Inter-generational Women’s Leadership Programme in the same year. WINAD exists to advance the rights of women and girls through thought leadership, mentoring, quality service delivery, and stakeholder engagement.
WINAD is a women’s organisation committed to strengthening the capacity and social consciousness of women and girls to lead social transformation in Trinidad and Tobago. WINAD’s programmes enable women and girls to explore and embrace an alternative leadership
framework which integrates the collective genius of all the people. WINAD’s work is based on three pillars: Research, Advocacy and Sensitization.
