No matter the environment; be it “Pay for Play”, “Experiential Learning”, or “Building and Installation” the outdoor industry is attracting more people of color, varying socio-economic situations, gender designations, and even political beliefs. Our industry is challenged to make our programs inclusive in a way that we have not before.

Learning Objectives:

1. How diversity can be a competitive advantage.
2. How to start the conversation and how to create an inclusive program.
3. Strategies to attract a more varied staff and serve a broader community.
