REI's 2019 Women's Speaker Series: Inspiring the Next Generation

  • Soho REI 295 Lafayette Street New York, NY 10012 (map)

Engaging girls in outdoor activities boosts confidence, creates healthy habits, and leads to the development of life skills beyond what is taught in school.

For the second 2019 REI Women's Speaker Series event we'll hear from:

Jasmine Benitez (Rocking the Boat) on her work providing educational and recreational experiences to high school girls using the Bronx River as their classroom.

Kathi Krause (Dirt Rock and Root Training) specializes in mountain biking coaching for women and girls, and is also the GRiT Coordinator for NICA New Jersey.

Allison Hauser (Girls on the Run NYC) will speak to the challenges facing outdoor recreation and leadership for girls in New York City, including how barriers can be overcome.

Beverages will be provided by Sapp, snacks by Honey Stinger, and raffle by REI. This event is free and advanced registration is required. You can learn more and sign up on REI’s site here.
