Portland State is home to the very first student affiliate group of OIWC, the Outdoor Industry Women’s Coalition.

The Portland State Outdoor IndustryWomen’s Coalition Student Affiliate group is open to both graduate and undergraduate students committed to workplace equity, diversity, and inclusion by expanding opportunities for women in the Athletic, Outdoor, Snow, and Bike Industries. The group is committed to holding quarterly events open to students and our OIWC community members. Group sponsorship comes directly from the Athletic and Outdoor Industry Program, part of the Center for Retail Management within the School of Business Administration.

We aim to connect tomorrow’s outdoor industry leaders with today’s OIWC members and resources to create lasting relationships and build strong networks. Our goal is to bridge the worlds of business and academia to establish an environment of shared learning and mentorship. The PSU afffiliate of OIWC extends a hand to the community to further the University’s commitment of “knowledge to serve the city” while embodying the focus of OIWC: professional development, education, and leadership.
