October 24 6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
109 NW Naito, Peterson Lecture Hall

The University of Oregon Sports Product Management program invites you to the first speaker series of the school year.

Sensi Graves will speak on her lessons learned in entrepreneurship over the last 7 years.

Our guest speaker Sensi Graves is a professional kiteboarder, entrepreneur, speaker, kiteboarding instructor, and writer. In 2007, she tentatively signed up for a kiteboarding lesson in North Carolina’s Outer Banks and immediately fell in love. Hood River regularly places in the top three at some of the biggest international kiteboarding invitationals, garners continuous coverage in kiteboarding magazines, and leads women's kiteboarding retreats worldwide.

In 2012, Sensi launched her eponymous swimwear label, Sensi Graves Bikinis, to meet the demands of her sport. After losing one too many string bikinis in the surf, she decided to tackle the job herself and design suits that actually stay on in rough conditions. Sensi's mission is to empower women to get out there and do what they love by giving them the confidence they need and swimwear they can rely on.

Please join us for a night of networking and learning from a local leader in the sport and outdoor industry.
