What’s top of mind for women in the outdoor space right now? We go to the inaugural “Women’s Outdoor Summit for Empowerment” in the Presidio of San Francisco with that question in the back of our mind. We find out that “empowerment” is more dynamic than the story we often tell ourselves.

Featuring Teresa Baker, Alyssa Ravasio (CEO of Hipcamp), Kelly Martin, Cicely Muldoon, Jarre Hamilton, Erin Thiem, Kate Mullen, Ava Holliday, Aparna Rajagopal-Durbin, Stephanie Barron, and Andrea Thomas.
