CLIF® x VOICEINSPORT Foundation
The VOICEINSPORT Foundation has a mission to advocate for girls and women in sport through research, education, and advocacy.
Sport builds confidence, resilience, and drive, but opportunities in sport are still uneven today. Once in sport, girls and women face multiple mental, physical, and societal challenges along their journey, and we have not yet reached equity across all levels. VOICEINSPORT Foundation believes the more opportunities and support girls have in sport, the stronger and more powerful they’ll be in all aspects of their lives.

Established in 2020, VOICEINSPORT Foundation is dedicated to closing the opportunity gap in sports as well as supporting women at all critical developmental moments of their sports journey such as breast development, menstruation, and psychological development.
CLIF® is proud to support VOICEINSPORT Foundation in hosting in-person and virtual Title IX trainings across the US to help girls and women understand their rights under the landmark law guaranteeing equal access to sport for girls. Additionally, CLIF® will support in establishing VOICEINSPORT Foundation chapters on state college campuses across the country for women and girl student athletes to access educational resources, gain leadership training, and network with women leaders in their area.

CLIF® x Outdoor Afro
Outdoor Afro celebrates and inspires Black connections and leadership in nature.
Started in 2009 as a social enterprise by Rue Mapp in Oakland, California, Outdoor Afro became a national non-profit in 2015 and has led the way for inclusion through programs that connect Black people and Black communities to nature through education, recreation, and conservation across the country.
CLIF BAR® has partnered with Outdoor Afro for nearly a decade, and is proud to help fuel the impactful work the network does, as well as support initiatives and programs like the organization's annual Outdoor Afro Leadership Training, Making Waves Program, and national Juneteenth commemoration. We are excited to continue to grow that partnership this year and beyond.
