August 16, 2019
Women’s apparel company Coeur Sports to host Opening Reception at the 2019 Outspoken Summit
DENVER CO – August 16, 2019 – Organizers of the Outspoken: Women in Triathlon Summit presented by Triathlete Magazine announced today Coeur Sports has signed on as a returning partner for this year’s summit. Coeur will host the opening reception on Friday, November 15th featuring keynote speaker, Olympian and Ironman Champion Sarah True.
The Outspoken Summit, occurring November 15th-17th in Tempe, AZ, is an annual initiative aimed at directly addressing systemic barriers in triathlon and developing solutions to increase and sustain women’s presence and leadership within the sport of triathlon.
Coeur Sports founder and designer, Kebby Holden, is excited to be returning to the Summit:
“The inaugural summit last year was eye-opening, powerful and inspiring. Coeur’s mission (in addition to making the best women’s clothing) is to create a super fun community for athletes to support one another. The Outspoken Summit has similar big goals and brings together the sport’s leaders, data and motivation to find out what we can do to improve the experience and numbers of women in triathlon. Coeur definitely wants to be a part of this, and we are looking forward to this year’s event.”
Dr. Lisa Ingarfield, Outspoken co-founder and researcher in gender equity, is excited to have a multi-year partner with the Summit, saying:
“We are thrilled Coeur is returning as a key sponsor for our second year. Working for women’s equity in triathlon is not achievable in silos or on our own. We have to come together with a shared voice and vision to push for positive change. Coeur’s consistent support of the Outspoken Summit is an example of the collaborative approach needed.”
Dr. Sara Gross, Ironman champion, Outspoken co-founder and founder of Live Feisty Media agrees:
“If we truly want to create sustainable change for women we need to work together. This is an all-hands-on-deck project. We’re so grateful for companies like Coeur who embrace this ethos and are committed to helping create an inclusive sport and support the next generation of leaders among us.”
