The Power & Practice of Collaboration Resource Round-Up

Yesterday,  Backcountry.com's Diana Seung and I were featured in a webinar on the "Power and Practice of Collaboration." The session was part of a series on leadership hosted by Camber Outdoors, an organization working to "achieve equality for all women in the outdoors, from the backcountry to the boardroom."
