Women in Board & Action Sports is an organization devoted to supporting, educating and inspiring women in the board and actionsports industry.
Some of the most inspirational women in boardsports and actionsports, hailing from all over Europe and overseas, gather once a year in Saas-Fee for a long weekend of networking, learning and sharing. As speakers, WIB invites some of the most well-respected and influential women of our industry such as Donna Carpenter (president of Burton Snowboards), AnnaMaria Rugarli (Sustainability & CSR Director VF), Maritxu Darrigrand (Roxy Founder) to share their insights and know-hows of our mainly male dominated industry. Special conference-themes, such as ‘How to Achieve a Goal’ in 2013 helped the attendees to understand better needs and expectations of the board and actionsport related companies and to concentrate more focused on their own career-path. WIB – Women in Action Sports also highlights the ‘female qualities’ and gives strength and trust to the gender through.
Participants also get to enjoy the unique Saas-Fee resort with spa treatments, yoga classes, delicious food and of course snowboarding and skiing. Workshops, Open Micro Sessions and Flow-Coachings by Swedish Flow Specialist AnnaLinda Hultström, as well as ‘freestyle’ activities and lots of super valuable in-between exchanges contribute greatly to the WIB success.
WIB – Women in Action Sports is open to ANY girl woman, working – or interested - in the industry.
