Why Trust Is Essential to Your COVID-19 Plan

Letter from Our Executive Director:
Why Trust Is Essential to Your COVID-19 Plan

Boulder, CO (March 20, 2020) – Challenging times test us as individuals and as organizations. Speed and chaos feed bias and are the enemy of equity and inclusion.

Our employees present or future, customers, and partners are watching and waiting to see what we will do. Now is the time to build trust and demonstrate your values.

You believed at the beginning of this year that improving equity, inclusion, and diversity was critical to the future of our industry and of your company. Your continued commitment to this work will enable your company to emerge stronger and more successful than ever.

Camber Outdoors has the resources to support you.

In the coming weeks we will be providing our community with the following:

→ On 3/30 we will be hosting a webinar on leading with inclusion at work—which will speak directly to the complex challenges our teams and leaders face today. Register here.

→ We’ve created a FREE COVID-19 Reading Room on our website where we are curating the most relevant and actionable content to help you navigate equity, inclusion, and diversity throughout changes at work. Check back often—we’ll continue to update this page regularly.

→ We are supporting nonprofits and entrepreneurs with FREE membership at this time.

→ We will be hosting an expert-led HR panel specifically for the planning and support of small- and mid-sized companies. Continue to check our events and social pages as we finalize the date.

→ We’ve developed a short survey to help our companies and industry respond to real-time workplace concerns. Your participation is important and will only take a few minutes. Take the survey here.

Keep an eye on our website and social media for continued updates.

Most of all remember: Those individuals and companies who remained true to their values of inclusion, equity and diversity will stand taller in the critical days that follow than those who faltered. And the best employees and customers will want to be a part of those companies whose leaders can be relied upon to stand true even when times are hard.

As always, feel free to reach out to us directly with any questions or for additional support.
