We have rolled out fresh new programs and expanded our #GiveBack initiatives this year. We are ready to roll up our sleeves over the summer to work on our grand celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Turkey. Join us to find out about our upcoming plans and ways we can co-create!


Emerging Trends in Leadership with Ümran Beba


As digital transformation, sustainability, crisis management, diversity, inclusion, and equity topics become critical for corporate strategy, leaders of today and the future are expected to understand and demonstrate these attributes in their strategic approach as well as everyday acts. How to get ready for leading organizations and teams to thrive in this environment needs thoughtful focus and continuous learning and adjustment. Successful leaders will grow with curiosity and global intelligence in this new era.


🤍 Give Back


We invite you to #GiveBack by hosting an Office Hour at BinYaprak, our digital sister platform. Each month, our circles host these cozy events to share our experiences. 

We thank our People and Culture Circle and amazing sisters, Gökçe Kulak, Özge Yılancıoğlu Erol and Gökçe Kurtar, for hosting BinYaprak Office Hours in May! 

Our Pharma Circle will host an office hour with Gamze Çıtıroğlu as well.

Our BinYaprak programming continues all year round. To learn more, you can always reach out to our #GiveBack Lead, Ayse Nur Ozcan, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


❤️ Our Earthquake #GiveBack Update


Our BinYaprak Job Search circles are in week 6! We have started this program with 1100 female students, over 200 facilitators, and 20 partners. We really are grateful to all the TurkishWINners who are participating in this program as facilitators, partners, and leaders. 

We are getting good news about job placements, lots of cheering, and amazing feedback to build a better program we will offer–again–in June. 

If you did not have a chance to participate in the pilot, this will be your chance!
