America Walks’ Women of the Walking Movement

Women have long-labored through the steep evolution of the walking movement. Here at America Walks, we recognize that women are essential to walkability and the creation of safe, accessible, enjoyable, and equitable places to walk.

We’re taking a moment to highlight some of our internal champions — women who have been building up America Walks for the last decade or more, and new leaders we are so grateful to usher in now.

Click on each profile below to learn more about our internal leaders who have walked many miles towards prioritizing people-first design and why being a woman affords them, and all of us, a critical perspective in this field.
