WOMEN IN ACTION SPORTS NETWORK is the evolution of Women in Board Sports, a non profit organisation that started back in 2009 when a group of industry professionals including Girlie Camps founder Marika Borg, Les Ettes Founder Carmela Fleury and the current Country Manager for Burton Snowboards Switzerland Daniela Meyer decided to gather a bunch of women in Saas-Fee, Switzerland, to see what happened.
There and then the community got a name and a space. It already existed but there was no place of reference.
During these 10 years, the WIB crew has also organised an annual lunch meet-up at ISPO MUNICH where a variety of relevant topics and time-worthy networking has taken place becoming a place of reference to meet up with other like minded women professionals.
