Sasha McGhee’s role at Camber Outdoors focuses on developing and maintaining programs that assist member organizations and individuals with creating equitable and inclusive workplace cultures, and bridging the gap between organizations creating those cultures and people hoping to work with them.
Sasha’s professional background is in business consulting and project and change management in the K-12 education and software customer experience industries. Throughout her career, she has primarily researched and implemented nuanced changes based on the needs of different groups, whether students, consumers or communities. She has also spent the last 3 years as a volunteer with Brown Girls Climb, creating fun and educational climbing opportunities for women of color, engaging outdoor organizations around developing inclusive practices and helping to remove barriers for underrepresented folks in the outdoors and in the outdoor workplace.
Growing up in South Georgia, Sasha and her siblings spent the majority of the weekends and sweltering summers exploring every corner of the wilderness in her neighborhood. She moved to Colorado in 2014 and from there, became active as a rock climber – her introduction to the mountainous outdoors and ultimately to the outdoor industry. Aside from rock climbing, Sasha enjoys hiking and canyoneering, traveling, learning to swing dance, and reading black feminist literature.
Sasha lives with her partner Ben Joel and cat Gracie Bell. She ultimately plans to spend her days traveling, working and adventuring in whatever city meets her needs at that time.
