Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
Habits come from sustained and progressive experience spending time outdoors, building comfort in nature, and reflecting on the experience. Communities of color feel particularly excluded from outdoor spaces, making comfort in nature specifically critical for building habits. Habits get reinforced by sharing the experience with peers and adult role models who support and encourage you. Moreover, habits flourish when the outings are fun, safe and meaningful.
We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to reap the benefits of spending time in nature, and that the outdoors industry has a big stake in fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for all who want to participate in the great outdoors.
