What is Women in the Outdoors Week?
Women in the Outdoors Week is a week of events focused specifically on women and their relationship with outdoor adventure. Events include panels, speakers, classes, social events, and outdoor trips.
Why is it important?
The outdoors is a source of empowerment, confidence, and community and we believe that those tools can help women succeed in all areas of life. Women's success benefits everyone in a community and society, contributing to economic gains, increased creativity, and a higher standard of living. In today's current climate, it is more important than ever for women to feel confident and connected.
Is it just for women?
Some events are open to everyone while others are open specifically to women and those who identify as women. Each event page indicates whether the event is public or for women specifically.
We think it's important for men to hear and be a part of conversations about outdoor inclusivity so we invite everyone to attend our panels and hear our speakers. However, our goal is also to give women their own space to practice skills and ask questions. While we acknowledge that we have a community of supportive, accepting men, many women do still feel intimidated in mixed groups. Through women's only events, we aim to help attendees build confidence and feel comfortable as they grow in their outdoor sport.
