How 'Own The Arena' Got It's Name

Christine, our founder, heard Brene Brown’s Talk about Theodore Roosevelt’s “Man in the Arena Speech” and thought; 

That’s it, that’s me and this is what I want to do. Show up, create, and work with people who dare greatly. People who know both the triumph of high achievement and the disappointment of failure…yet they keep coming into the arena again and again devoting themselves to a worthy cause. Let’s Own the Arena Together! 

Since then team OTA has grown and continued to be guided by the values and principles embodied in Theodore Roosevelt’s Arena speech. Though we added “Woman in the Arena”.
