Event description


On June 14 and 15, the Women's Outdoor Summit for Empowerment will be held at the Presidio, a unique and surprising national park site located in San Francisco at the Golden Gate. This intimate event aims to create greater equality and inclusivity for women who work and play in the outdoors by bringing together leaders across various agencies and organizations.

Outdoor enthusiasts, CEOs, and women who have who have made their playgrounds, workplaces, and careers in the outdoors will all be in attendance. While this gathering will address matters that may affect women specifically, it is open to all. The summit will be fully interactive with opportunities for participants to share their personal stories and strategies for overcoming adversity and fueling a better future.

This 2-day summit will include traditional and nontraditional formats. The first day will be held mostly indoors, with speakers, tabled conversations, and open Q&A sessions. That evening, an outdoor campfire discussion will be held at the Presidio’s Rob Hill Campground. The campground will also serve as the outdoor lodging/camping site for attendees. The second day will be held entirely outdoors centered at the campground and will feature dialogues and an exploration of the beautiful Presidio.

Guest speakers will include Rose Marcario, President and CEO of Patagonia, Dr. Carolyn Finney, Professor at the University of Kentucky and author of Black Faces in White Spaces, Kelly Martin, Chief of Fire and Aviation at Yosemite, Morgan Dixon, CEO of GirlTrek, Alyssa Ravasio, founder of Hipcamp, and Georgina Miranda, founder and CEO of Altitude Seven.

There will be a fun, but purpose-driven atmosphere of learning, sharing, collaborating, listening, and, most of all, bonding, over concerns that many face in their day to day lives in the workplace and the outdoor spaces that we all love and cherish.
