14 Jan We’re Speaking at the Women in Travel Summit!
OG is headed to California, baby!! That’s right! We’ve teamed up with the Women in Travel Summit (WITS) – the premier conference for women travel bloggers, global explorers, and travel industry entrepreneurs! Organized by the good folks at Wanderful, WITS aims to create an empowering and supportive environment for women to gather, network, and exchange ideas around travel entrepreneurship.
Taking place this upcoming March 18-20 in Irvine, California, our Communications & Marketing Director, Justine, will kick off the workshop series breaking down what we know and do best: backpacking with a purpose! Our session will uncover the pressing ethical issues surrounding the voluntourism industry while also highlighting its potential for true cross-cultural exchange. We hope to give attendees a deeper, more nuanced understanding of the current voluntourism landscape, as well as the tools to create meaningful social change through their travels.
It’s sure to be an incredible opportunity to connect with like-minded, adventurous, and self-starting women and we hope you’ll join us! We’ve even got a handy promo code to help you get there. Just use the code BACKPACKTIVISM10 to get 10% off tickets (active til Jan. 31st)!
