BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — The Outdoor Industries Women’s Coalition and the Bicycle Product Suppliers Association have selected the recipients of the women’s scholarship program that will enable three women to attend the Bicycle Leadership Conference in Monterey, California, this April.

Winners of the Cycling Women to Watch scholarship are Amanda Schulze, women's business manager at Trek Bicycles; Sarah Johnson, supply chain analyst II at QBP; and Rebecca Karbon, north regional sales manager at Specialized Bicycles.

“The BPSA is proud to underwrite these OIWC scholarships. This is the second year of full rides to BLC for a younger, more diverse group of future industry leaders, and we hope to continue this great tradition," said Ray Keener, BPSA executive director.

The Bicycle Leadership Conference, owned and managed by the BPSA, is an annual, three-day conference for industry leaders and key stakeholders that includes networking, education and collaboration on key issues and opportunities facing the industry. The scholarship will cover conference registration, round-trip airfare and hotel accommodations.

“The Bicycle Leadership Conference is the perfect opportunity for these women to gain invaluable industry insight, while expanding their professional network,” said Deanne Buck, executive director of the OIWC. “As we focus on creating a stronger, more sustainable cycling industry with engaged, top-tier female talent, we are grateful for organizations like BPSA that support our efforts.”
