OIWC launches additional programming to ignite industry-wide change

OIWC’s tradition and commitment to investing in women already working in the industry has laid the foundation for OIWC to add additional programming that addresses systemic industry barriers toward greater workplace gender diversity and inclusivity. Recently, OIWC launched several programs designed challenge the status quo including the CEO Pledge for workplace inclusion and The Workshop, a program dedicated to showcasing the talents of entrepreneurs.

CEO Pledge
The OIWC CEO Pledge is a visible and strategic commitment from industry CEO’s to the acceleration of women’s leadership within their companies. CEO’s who sign the pledge will, among other things, foster an environment where individual differences are respected and celebrated, enhance recruiting efforts, provide OIWC metrics for program measurement, and adopt practices designed to increase retention.
Top leaders coming together, like they have with the CEO Pledge, is a testament to the strength of our industry's shared values. Together, we will attract, retain, and elevate talented women with a love for the outdoors to and within our companies.

The Workshop

The Workshop is an exciting initiative providing a dedicated channel for creativity and entrepreneurism among women with a passion and love for the outdoors.

The initial phase of The Workshop highlights Pitchfest, a program that provides a platform for women to submit their new innovation or product ideas for a chance to live pitch in front of influential industry CEO’s and gain insight, visibility, and valuable feedback.
