I am competing in the 2022 Rebelle Rally, an all-women off road rally across the California and Nevada desert. Since registering, I've been curious about how women are showing up and changing the outdoor industry. I am so impressed by the women building brands that enable women to get outside. While at Overland Expo last September, I scoured the event for women showing up in a predominately cis white male space, continually asking, "Where are the women? What are they making? How are they doing it differently?"
From this inquiry, The OutSpring was born: a gathering of women in celebration and support of each others' journey to get into nature. It starts online with resources to find products, services and experiences. The OutSpring is a place to get inspired with storytelling and connect with other women. Join us on this adventure at www.theoutspring.com!
One day soon, I hope to leverage my experience at Maker Faire and Alt Summit gathering women together to amplify and share our adventures in the outdoors.
