In 2017, REI made a big, bold move to further its commitment to gender equity in the outdoors: They launched a holistic effort to elevate women across every touch point of their business and set out to ensure that the outdoors is “the world’s largest level playing field.” This effort is called Force of Nature. REI’s Force of Nature’s Business Leader, Laura Swapp, will highlight overall strategy, some key lessons learned and will facilitate a conversation with brands on the hottest topic that emerged from customers: extended sizing.
