Suunto Will Host Outdoor Industry Women’s Coalition Network Night
Suunto, a global leader in sports precision instruments, is a corporate member of the Outdoor Industries Women’s Coalition and is hosting an OIWC Quarterly Network Night on Tuesday, April 24, 2012 at the Amer Sports Winter and Outdoor Americas (ASWO) offices in Ogden. This is an opportunity to meet and network with other OIWC members to discuss this quarter’s designated topic, “Change For Yourself.”
Keynote speaker Kristin Ulmer from Ulmer International will be leading the discussion on what it means to implement changes in women’s professional and personal lives. Ulmer has a diverse background in Zen and movement-based psychological work as a former professional skier and extreme athlete.
ASWO will be opening the Salomon, Suunto and Atomic company store at 4:30 p.m. exclusively for conference attendees with a portion of the store proceeds going to OIWC. All members are welcome and encouraged to bring one guest for an additional one-time fee of $20.
