Welcome to the 2023 WINS Symposium!


After heavy consideration and due to a less-than anticipated number of registrants for this year’s conference, the 2023 WINS Symposium will be moved to a virtual format and will be condensed to a single day: Saturday, March 11th, 2023. This decision was not made lightly, and we know this is disappointing to many, but we are still excited to welcome you virtually as we come together to highlight the voices and stories of some of our Navy and Marine Corps’s most distinguished leaders. 

Registration is now closed.

If you no longer wish to attend the WINS Symposium, please email wolverinebattalionwins@gmail.com and we will take you off the registration list. 

The registration fee has been waived, and those who have registered and paid for the in-person event will be refunded as soon as possible—please allow our team two weeks to transfer funds back to you. 

Additionally, we will be canceling all reserved hotel rooms in the coming days, and full refunds will be issued. Again, we appreciate your patience and understanding.

We apologize for the inconvenience to those that have planned on attending an in-person conference and sincerely hope to welcome you to Ann Arbor in the near future. Thank you for your interest in the 2023 WINS Symposium, we look forward to your attendance virtually, and please do not hesitate to reach out to wolverinebattalionwins@gmail.com with any questions, concerns, or feedback.

Please stay tuned for more information and updates regarding our virtual conference in the coming weeks.

Very Respectfully,


MIDN 2/C Sutterlin

How has WINS impacted Midshipmen?

“WINS is an incredible opportunity to bring together one of the strongest networks in the U.S Navy. Less than 10% of staff members of NROTC units are female; this event alone allows both men and women to network and be inspired by incredible officers that they may not be exposed to in their normal training. Diversity makes us stronger.” -Sydney Eskin, George Washington University

“Hearing inspiring stories from women in the naval service and learning their tips and tricks to navigating the field was such a crucial part of the weekend. I loved the presenters and took a lot of great advice moving forward.” -Henry Chow, Georgetown

“WINS not only taught me how to navigate a male-dominated career field, but also how to be a strong and empowering leader in general. It taught me that my relationships with my subordinates are just as important those with my superiors. It brought me into contact with officers and senior enlisted from various backgrounds who have become my mentors and individuals I look up too. This event brings midshipmen from different schools with different stories together to learn how to lead from the front.” – Alyssa Sharp, University of Kansas
