2023 UWOT Annual Report
In 2023, United Women on the Fly (UWOTF) celebrated its 7th anniversary with a strategic emphasis on financial sustainability. The year was dedicated to strengthening relationships, forging new partnerships, and securing sponsors to support UWOTF’s ongoing mission, ensuring long-term growth, and highlighting the voice of women within the fly fishing community.
The 2023 UWOTF Annual Review celebrates our shift from virtual engagements since 2020 to emphasizing in-person gatherings. In addition to hosting physical events, the focus extended to empowering women through education and scholarships. This included virtual education and three new scholarship programs, with the aim to diversify and support the current and future fly fishing community. A big thank you to those who have generously donated, making these scholarships a reality.
At the heart of every project, post, conversation, and relationship cultivated by UWOTF lies our ongoing commitment to our JEDI journey. We actively engage in challenging conversations with organizations, communities, manufacturers, businesses, and community members to ensure that women’s voices are both heard and represented within fly fishing industry.
