HIT Like a Girl pod is taking the show on the road to Mount Major Alton Bay, NH! Join the HIMSS New England Chapter on June 26 at 8:00 am ET for a COVID-safe hiking tour to walk and talk with women leaders in the region. Episodes recorded on the journey will be content for Season 6!

Girls Inc. of the Seacoast Area is an affiliate of Girls Incorporated, a national research, education and direct advocacy organization that inspires girls to be strong, smart and bold.

It’s All in the Journey

  • Hiking is a great way to connect with other women safely while discussing work-life balance, career issues and other timely topics.
  • Develop leadership and self-advocacy skills that will help you gain confidence, level-up or launch your brand.
  • These types of women-led activities have been shown to help women scrutinize their leadership traits and experiences. They also reveal important information about the day-to-day environment in which they operate, which companies embrace, according to McKinsey.

What to Expect

  • Registration for each event is open. Space is limited and will cap at the current number of attendees allowed to gather per state, per CDC guidelines.
  • When you register you will select your timeslot for the hike. The hike will be broken out into heats to ensure we can maintain social distancing. Each heat will have a capacity cap.
  • All participants commit to wear masks, obey social distancing recommendations, maintain hygiene standards, and follow CDC guidance as it evolves.
