OIWC's Portland Gathering
OIWC has committed to putting on regional events to reach those that can't make the tradeshows. This is one of many you will see throughout the year. We are excited to be working with our sponsors in Portland to make this happen.
This Summer the OIWC Professional Development Committee will be launching The OIWC's Guide to Turning Your Passion into Your Profession. As an insider’s take on the industry, the Guide will help those who want to turn their passion into their profession navigate this new territory successfully.
Please join us for a night of discussion and networking.
4-4:30pm: Open networking
4:30-6pm: Break out sessions on OIWC Guide.
The breakout sessions will focus on transitioning to the outdoor industry from three different perspectives:
New to industry – for new grads or people from other industries
Transitioning within the industry – for those interested in moving between different segments (snow, bike, outdoor), functional areas (product, marketing, sales, operations), or from retail to vendor
Re-entering the workforce or transitioning to different work/life balance – for women looking to shift their roles to improve their balance life/work or focus on family
6-6:30pm: Open networking
