What is Women in Board & Action Sports?
We are 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, hail from all over the world and gather once a year for a few days of networking, learning and sharing.
Women in Board & Action Sports 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 Board & Action Sports also highlights the ‘female qualities’ and gives strength and trust to the gender through.
Participants also get to take part in many workshops, Open Micro Sessions and Flow-Coachings by Swedish Flow Specialist AnnaLinda Hultström, as well as many Outdoor activities and lots of super valuable in-between exchanges contribute greatly to the WIB success.
WIB – Women in Board & Action Sports is open to ANY girl woman, working – or interested - in the industry.
