OIWC's Pledge Celebration and Leadership Awards will be held Sept. 16 from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Mandalay Bay, South Pacific F Ballroom in Las Vegas.

"We are honored to provide a forum for Jerry to share with other industry leaders and influencers why The REI Foundation, in honor of its founder Mary Anderson, invested $1.5 million earlier this year in OIWC's efforts to build a more inclusive industry where great ideas and innovation are born from a diversity of experiences," said Deanne Buck, executive director of OIWC. "We are also looking forward to celebrating those leaders who have already signed the OIWC CEO Pledge in the cycling industry and welcome those who want to learn more."

In addition to Stritzke's remarks, the event will also include the presentation of the 2015 bicycling industry Pioneering Woman and First Ascent awards.
