Join us for an evening discussing Womxn in the Outdoors! Acclaimed expert on womxn, diversity, and outdoor recreation Dr. Nina Roberts of San Francisco State University will present and lead a dialogue on issues, experiences, and opportunities for womxn in outdoor recreation.
The goals of this event are too:
-Raise awareness on issues, experiences, challenges, and opportunities related to womxn in outdoor recreation
-Identify critical areas for change and formulate effective strategies.
-Develop relationships (alliances, partnerships, coalitions) that enhance outdoor recreation opportunities for womxn
-Build community through outdoor recreation
Womxn in the Outdoors invites dialogue that is critical, inclusive, and respectful. Because different views, voices, backgrounds, and experiences are welcomed, successful dialogue requires grace, empathy, and appreciation, ideally allowing everyone to achieve a better understanding.
Representatives of local outdoor recreation organizations and businesses will be present for questions and discussion.
