Outdoor Women's Alliance

Outdoor Women’s Alliance® is a volunteer-run nonprofit media and adventure collective that engages, educates, and empowers females worldwide. Through the lens of human-powered adventure, we work to inspire confidence and leadership in women of all ages, believing that confident women have the power to build healthy communities and — quite literally — change the world.

Our individual-focused programs assist aspiring outdoor industry professionals through a variety of internships, organizational leadership roles, professional mentorship, and resumé-building experiences.

Our community-focused programs are served locally through our grassroots teams, and globally through collaborations with professional athletes, like-minded organizations, brands, and our online channels. These programs serve to build leadership and confidence in individuals, promote active outdoor lifestyles, and increase recognition for the athletic abilities of women in adventure sports.

Aided by these programs, we form a network that connects the outdoor community. We do this to help women find the resources, peers, and events that will help them gain the knowledge, skills, and motivation they need to achieve their potential.

Through our work, we aim to help advance the standing of women worldwide.
