Arcteryx is Hosting a Panel with BIPOC Outdoor Leaders

Being welcomed is not the same as being included. As Dr. Crystal Jones eloquently puts it, “There’s a huge difference between ‘all are welcome’ and ‘this was created with you in mind.” For many BIPOC individuals in the outdoor community, this sentiment rings true, and if they try addressing the issue they’re often met with backlash. To promote discussion and change, Arcteryx is hosting a panel discussion with a stacked list of changemakers and leaders from the outdoor community: Faith E. Briggs, Niyilolawa Uzoma Ubuntu, Kareemah Batts, and more. The event will be live on Wednesday, August 26th at 12 pm PST, and hosted by Shelma Jun. For more information and to register, head over to Arcteryx Academy’s website.
