In memory of the co-founder of Jan Sport, the Outdoor Industry Association launched last year the Skip Yowell Future Leadership Academy. The program was a huge success with over 22 participants and 12 mentors from the outdoor and active lifestyle markets.
I am happy to announce that the program had over a 100 applicants and Ladyhawk was chosen!
I am thrilled!
I am stoked!
I am honored.
I can’t wait!
The program officially kicks off at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market next month and I am SO ready for this new opportunity to connect with industry colleagues, gain additional insight on industry trends, and ultimately give back to an industry that has given me so much.
You can read more about the program and the other industry leaders selected for the program here.
See you next month at OR and at the trailhead!
