Coalition Snow & Wild Women’s Project Co-Host Women’s Panel & Workshop at Summer 2017 Outdoor Retailer
July 21, 2017
The goal? To create a working Manifesto, designed to support women in navigating toward their true north in a sea of dude soup, as well as supporting the industry in developing a stronger path of inclusivity and diversity.
The statistics are bleak — only 4% of Fortune 500 companies have female CEOs, and women represent just 37% of the National Park Service workforce — yet their power and potential is unlimited. In this panel we will explore what it takes to change this reality, and we will envision what the outdoor industry could look and feel like if more women were in leadership positions.
Please join Jen Gurecki, CEO of Coalition Snow, and Amanda Goad, founder of Wild Women’s Project, at a Summer OR panel and workshop.

About Coalition Snow
Coalition Snow started with a team of women from Lake Tahoe who knew we couldn’t sit around and wait for someone else to design the equipment that would help us push our limits, master our skills, and feel confident and alive on the mountain. So we took things into our own hands and launched the world’s first company specializing in performance skis and snowboards designed by women, for women. www.coalitionsnow.com
