What is Outspoken?
Outspoken is an opportunity for women in triathlon to connect with like-minded women, hear from industry leaders, and develop leadership skills related to their role in triathlon. The summit will provide a rich forum that will help develop strong voices, inspire others and advocate for change in the sport you love. Together, summit attendees will work to elevate women's triathlon and women in the business of triathlon through partnership, community, a focus on solutions, and skill development.
There is a noticeable gap between triathlon and women: women are still underrepresented in the sport and in the sport's leadership positions. We decided this continued inequity needs to be addressed. We want to bring together women's voices in triathlon to engage in discussion, learning, and strategy development. The Summit will provide women with both individual leadership skills as well as drive a coordinated approach to gender equity in triathlon. Our voices are stronger when woven together. The Summit strives to amplify our voices and to enact real and sustained change in the sport.
