The Outdoor Industries Women's Coalition (OIWC) is accepting nominations for the 2009 Pioneering Woman Award. This award honors women within the Outdoor Industry who have furthered the vision of the OIWC by demonstrating an outstanding commitment to mentoring female colleagues. Previous winners of this prestigious award include Paige Boucher, Carolyn Cooke, Kim Coupounas, Ann Krcik, Norma Hansen, Rachel Ligtenberg, and Kitty Bradley.

To compliment the Pioneering Woman award, the OIWC created the First Ascent Award. This award recognizes a woman new to the industry who has demonstrated strong potential for leadership. It also furthers the vision of OIWC by increasing visibility of talented young women exhibiting the skills for long-term success. Past winners include Angela Hassan of Backcountry.com, Tsedo Sherpa of Sherpa Mountain Gear, Jordan Jiskra of Burton Snowboards, and Jennifer Wittman of Outside Magazine.

The recipients of the Pioneering Woman Award and First Ascent awards will be announced at the annual winter OIWC Gathering on Friday, January 23rd. The event, will be held at Pierpont Place (163 W Pierpont Ave), and will include great food and networking opportunities. Details regarding the time of the awards presentation will be announced at a later date.

This year OIWC will offer both award recipients a free one year membership to the coalition.

The deadline to submit nominations for both awards is December 15, 2008. Nominations can be submitted online at www.oiwc.org/awards. Please confirm your nominee will be at Winter Market and is available to attend the OIWC event.
