Bex Band is an adventurer (www.theordinaryadventurer.com) and founder of the UK”s largest women’s adventure community, Love Her Wild (www.loveherwild.com). Her expeditions have included hiking 1000km across Israel, kick-scooting the length of the USA and crossing the Jordan desert. She believes that everyone should be able to access adventure as it builds confidence and connects people to the natural world.
Seeing a lack of women in the outdoors, Bex launched Love Her Wild in 2017 to provide support and opportunities for women in adventure. Now with over 11,000 members, Love Her Wild has taken over 1,000 women on life changing expeditions around the world. As well as having an online forum, the community runs a mentoring program and funding schemes to break down financial and social barriers holding women back from getting outdoors.
Bex has been recognised by Business Leader as UK’s top 30 inspirational entrepreneurs and was award the Next Generation Award by Enterprise Nation. For her work advocating women in adventure she has been shortlisted for a National Diversity Award and in 2018 was given ‘Legacy Maker’ status on the San Miguel Alternative Rich List.
