Part 4 | Not Just a Boys’ Club
Part 4 of Not Just a Boys' Club follows Geneviève de la Plante, co-owner of Allez Up and founder of The B.I.G Initiative, as she explains why she created B.I.G. and what she hopes the organization can do for women. We also follow Flannery Shay-Nemirow, instructor for The B.I.G Initiative, through a B.I.G workshop, as she explains concretely how the organization is helping women in the setting. The video will hopefully help explain why The B.I.G Initiative is important and how it's hoping to bring about change. For internationalwomensday, we bring to you Not Just a Boys' Club, a 4-part video series presented by The B.I.G Initiative and The North Face, in collaboration with Mate Libre, that offers nine different women who currently work in the climbing industry. The purpose of the series is to highlight some of the women who currently play essential roles within the industry and present some of the challenges they've faced throughout their careers to inspire the community as a whole to reexamine how gender can affect opportunities.
