Call for Nominations for the Outdoor Industries Women’s Coalition

Outdoor and Snow Industry Leadership Awards

Deadline for Submissions is December 5, 2013

BOULDER, COLO., November 21, 2013 – The Outdoor Industries Women’s Coalition (OIWC) is pleased to announce the annual call for nominations for its Pioneering Women Award and First Ascent Award in the Snow and Outdoor Industries. The Pioneering Women and First Ascent Awards for the Outdoor and Snow Industries were established by OIWC to recognize a remarkable woman who has paved the way for other women, as well as an up-and-coming leader who shows strong potential for being an industry influencer. Past winners include Sally McCoy, CamelBak CEO & President, Donna Carpenter, Burton Co-founder & President, and Annelise Lovevlie, Icelandic Skis CEO, and Kim Walker, Outdoor DIVAS CEO & Founder.

OIWC recognizes that women leaders and a diversified workforce are good for business. OIWC’s Pioneering Women and First Ascent Awards celebrate the visible impact of the advancement of women both inside and outside the companies where they work. “The OIWC Leadership Awards is an excellent opportunity to highlight women who are blazing new trails in our industries,” says Amy Luther, OIWC Program Director. “Past winners are today’s industry leaders among women and men. This is our industries’ opportunity to thank them for their contribution to the growth and expansion of our reach and relevancy to a more diverse audience.”

Criteria for nominations include:

  • The Pioneering Women Award recognizes a “maven of mentoring,” someone who has furthered the vision of the OIWC by demonstrating an outstanding commitment to mentoring female colleagues. A Pioneering Award winner is a woman who has paved the way for her team, other women in her company, and set an example for the entire industry.
  • The First Ascent Award recognizes a woman new to the industry who demonstrates strong potential for leadership, and furthers the vision of OIWC by increasing visibility of talented young women at lower levels in an organization, thereby facilitating their leadership development on their journey to future leadership.

Nominations must be completed and submitted to the OIWC website  by December 5, 2013.
