Building the Outdoor Industry Employment Pipeline: Stronger, Better, Smarter!
Friday, January 31, 2020
12:00pm - 1:30pm MT
Unlike many industries, working in the outdoor industry does not require a specialized degree or continuing education credits. However, as the outdoor industry’s $887 billion economic impact continues to grow and elevate the profile and popularity of the industry, there is an increasing need for tailored workforce development and professional education opportunities. Many programs and certificates are available to support an informed workforce and a strong talent pipeline and to help address issues around accessibility, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Moderated by Nathan Fey, CO Outdoor Recreation Industry Office, this panel will address the current state and future vision of outdoor industry education from innovative university degrees and certificate programs to leadership training programs and mentorship.
Emily Newman, Executive Director Camber Outdoors
