Camber Outdoors surveys workplaces on gender equity, diversity and inclusion

Published March 24, 2017

BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — Camber Outdoors is conducting a comprehensive survey of women and men who work in the active-outdoor industries to inform a new study of workplace experiences. The organization will use web survey findings to continue to develop and create programs and initiatives that support gender equity, diversity and inclusion in the active-outdoor industries.

"In 2012, Camber Outdoors launched an initial workplace study, designed to gauge perceptions of the state of gender diversity in the active-outdoor industries. The results of that study have helped us create tools and measure efforts around gender diversification," said Deanne Buck, executive director of Camber Outdoors. "We look forward to seeing the results of the 2017 survey and to analyze improvements and opportunities."

Results from the 2012 Workplace Study, which have helped inform Camber Outdoors' programming over the past five years, will serve as a benchmark for this work. The 2017 survey is being conducted by Breakaway Research.

Survey participants will be entered to win a trip down the Lower Salmon River provided by OARS (valued at $2,446). Interbike, Malakye, OIA and Outdoor Retailer have agreed to share the survey with their audiences.

The survey is online at 2017 Workplace Survey.
