Adventure + Inspiration + Community
Why She Ventures?
She Ventures is more than an event series, but a movement changing the narrative of what it means to be an adventurer, a woman, a leader, and a change maker. We are a testimony that women can be anything we want to be and that our voice matters and inspires others.
The face of adventure is changing and women are driving that change. Women make up almost 50 percent of outdoor participation and leading the way in terms of solo and adventure travel, yet we still lack visibility.
We knew there were amazing female founders, leaders, athletes, artists, change makers in the outdoor, adventure travel, and wellness space globally working hard to get more women outside and on adventures, yet a forum did not exist to help bring them together and raise visibility to all that they do. We found women continue to want to find new ways of connecting with other women that have a shared passion for adventure, the outdoors, travel, and doing good in our world. It was time for us to unite, bring our communities together, welcome new community, and host events to celebrate women that choose adventure as a way of life.
After all, we are Changing the Face of Adventure!
In addition to our core team, we collaborate with trailblazing female founders and leaders in each of the cities we host events in to bring them to life.
Georgina is an adventurer, entrepreneur, and activist.
She is the founder and CEO of Altitude Seven, an adventure lifestyle media platform for women. It was created to help a global community of women adventurers and travelers discover inspirational stories, the best in outdoor/adventure travel apparel, gear, experiences, community, and purpose all in one place! She is inspiring women around the world to #ChooseAdventure.
While she has an extensive corporate background and ex-management consultant, her heart lies in adventure and it has led her to scale 6 of the 7 Summits (highest peak on each continent), including Mt. Everest and many other peaks around the world to raise awareness around gender-based violence. She is currently in the process of completing the Explorer Grand Slam.
Georgina credits the mountains and a life of adventure to shaping who she is today. Her mission now is to share the gift of adventure with others.

When she’s not playing in the Sierra Nevada, you can find her in Kenya working with Zawadisha, a non-profit social enterprise providing fair and transparent microloans to women through an innovative model of lending that is soundly pro-poor, pro-woman, and pro-environment. #investinwomen
