Michael Winger’s lifelong commitment to business innovation and diversity enabled his professional career to move from product innovation to organizational innovation in both the private and government sectors. His work in change management and strategic change brought him to advising senior management of Fortune 500 companies and senior leadership of the United States military, Department of Energy and other government agencies. Public speaking in his professional field has included, among many others, presentations at Carnegie-Mellon University on the integration of technology, business acumen and human dynamics; and on entrepreneurship at the The Innovation Imperative talks at the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge and London in the United Kingdom.
Michael has also served with various organizations that promote racial unity and the equality of women and men, including assistance in the development of strategic focus for NGOs on the status of women worldwide, for presentation to the United Nations General Assembly, as well as strategic consulting to the Tahirih Justice Center, an NGO that provides legal support to abused women seeking immigration status in the United States.
A dedication to the fostering of racial harmony and cultural diversity has taken him to over 45 countries, and to live in six, bringing the teachings of the Bahá’í Faith that foster the oneness of mankind and the development of a world consciousness.
In 2010, Michael retired from active business involvement and went pioneering for the Bahá’í Faith to Croatia where he currently resides.
