Virtual Women's Outdoor Summit - presented by Teresa Baker, JAM Collective & Ravel Media

About this Event

In celebration of International Women’s Month, Teresa Baker has teamed up with JAM Collective & Ravel Media to present another summit for women of the outdoor industry to connect and learn from one another.

This three-day virtual event was made possible thanks to sponsorship by Backcountry, with additional support provided by Arc'teryx, Merrell, Outdoor Research, Patagonia and Smartwool, and is geared towards cis and trans women, as well as people who experience gender discrimination in their outdoor professional and personal lives.

We welcome all people who are comfortable in a space that centers the experiences of women.

This event is free thanks to the support of our generous sponsors, and all proceeds from sponsorship will be donated The Cairn Project, an organization that expands outdoor access for girls and young women by supporting community-based wilderness and outdoor education groups around the country through a small grants program. ASL interpretation will be available for the duration of the event and land acknowledgements will be facilitated by Jaylyn Gough, founder of Native Womens Wilderness, at the commencement of each engagement.
