As part of the "The WIN Global Women's Initiative 2012-2014," the organization's intentions are to share the voices of the women of the world with leaders at the community, national and international levels worldwide, and to enlighten, empower and gain critical information from local women that will be presented at the United Nations in New York City in September.

The summit is limited to 100 female attendees and includes inspiring presenters, uplifting music, local leadership awards and videos featuring Susan Boyle and Marianne Williamson.

Patricia Varley, Hawai'i director of WIN, will speak at the summit. She has "always been very passionate about women and women's issues," and chose to host the event to give back to the community. Patricia will speak on "Women and Self Leadership: Mastering Self to Empower Others."

Maui Relationship Specialist and Author Eve Eschner Hogan will address "Creating Powerful Relationships With Self and Others."

Paula Fellingham, president and founder of WIN, will also attend and deliver the keynote speech, "Believe It! Become It! How to Overcome Your Obstacles and Excel in Every Area of Your Life."

Summit attendees will engage in conversation and be asked three proactive questions regarding "how can we (the women of the world) live in dignity and contribute to the well-being of women and families worldwide?" The answers will be collected (including from summits all over the globe) by Fellingham and presented to the head of the United Nations in New York City in September.

The event also has a local focus. As Varley noted, "We're going to be giving local awards and putting the spotlight on nonprofits. The summit will have local leadership awards and will highlight local nonprofits that are focused on women."

WIN began in 2009 with a mission to strengthen women and families worldwide through education, enlightenment and entrepreneurism. This is all in an effort to eradicate illiteracy, poverty, and hunger, and to lift the level of love, prosperity, and peace on Earth.

Tickets are $99 and include a continental breakfast, program and lunch. For tickets or information, go to or call (800) 529-0063, or (808) 875-8820.
