We Build Confidence and Community Through Adventure...
After being told too many times that she was "brave for a girl", Kieren Britton, founder of The Lady Alliance, had had enough. We have this bravery in all of us, it's not restricted by gender. Kieren was determined to bring this to light.
The Lady Alliance started as an online social community where women had the chance to share their story. Whether it was a photo or adventure article, ladies could submit their adventures and speak through The Lady Alliance.
As the community grew, so did the demand for a chance to meet everyone in person. The Lady Alliance's first all women meet up was held in September 2017 at the A O Wheeler Hut in Glacier National Park.
This meet up was titled the "First Annual Long Weekend Meet Up" as there was no original intention of becoming an adventure traveling community. We had no idea how excited this community was to meet in person...
The meet up reached capacity in only a matter of weeks. The meet up was full of inspiring women from all over the globe.
Since our first trip The Lady Alliance has grown to include other adventures, retreats, and courses. We have yoga'd in Bali, surfed in Tofino, learnt avalanche safety, and so much more. In March of 2018 Mountain Equipment Coop (MEC) partnered with The Lady Alliance to extend their reach to empower women of all ages and backgrounds.
Today, The Lady Alliance has morphed into a beautiful community providing opportunity for women to find empowerment through adventure and, of course, each other.
We now include adventure based self-love and wellness retreats, events focusing on mental wellness, empowerment and self-love, inspirational speaking conferences, outdoor courses, and online courses.
Collaboration Over Competition
Mountain Girls, Women Who Explore, Women On The Road... These are just a few groups that work hand in hand with The Lady Alliance.
Whether it's collaborative adventures, empowering women together, or weekly accountability calls - these communities all truly believe that we are...
We are stronger together.
Collaboration is always better than competition. Sometimes we forget that. It is easy to feel as though we need to compete to be the best, when in reality we can create even more positive change when working together.
We, at The Lady Alliance, are honoured to call these groups our friends, and community family.
Kieren loves to dream of the ridiculous and make it a reality. Whether it's cycling across Canada or converting a school bus into a full time home, there is nothing Kieren enjoy's more than testing the limits and learning more about herself!
Growing up in the outdoors has crafted Kieren into who she is today. Yet she still has hesitations, and self doubt. Kieren wanted to create a place where everyone could learn and grow together, demolishing self doubt while building a community.
Through The Lady Alliance Kieren has found healing and solace, friends and 'framily', and a love for life through adventure.
