“As part of Wondery’s mission to empower women and other underrepresented communities in the outdoors, we identify, partner with, and support existing communities and groups who are already making moves for a cause. This year, The Onsight will help amplify the outstanding efforts of the Ladies Climbing Coalition,” said Lydia Mok, community director at Wondery Brand. “Climbing is a sport with some high barriers to entry. Our events are intended to level those barriers and empower more women by inviting them in and celebrating our collective strengths.”
