Outdoor Women’s Alliance® (OWA) is a volunteer-run nonprofit media and adventure collective that engages, educates, and empowers females worldwide. Through the lens of human-powered adventure, we work to inspire confidence and leadership in women of all ages, believing that confident women have the power to build healthy communities and — quite literally — change the world.
Serving more by staying core
The outdoors benefits all participants. That’s why we focus only on what matters, and leave aside everything else.
1. Outdoor Women’s Alliance aims to serve women of every age — including the rising generation of outdoor women — and every nationality, culture, religious background, and life experience. We see the outdoors as tool for confidence, leadership growth, and healing. Using this as our foundation, OWA stands proudly free from alcohol and drugs across all aspects of our nonprofit programming.
2. Because of our international scope, varied cultural representations — and perhaps most importantly — to avoid the heated polarization that plagues what could serve as a positive space or interaction, we are a non-political organization and do not take a stance on current social issues; both of these topics are often particular to a smaller region and fall outside our both our organizational mission and worldwide perspective.
