Everyone has a role and a place in making workplace equity a reality within the active-outdoor industries.
Since the launch of the CEO Pledge in January 2015, Camber Outdoors heard time and again that our partners want to learn from each other on what works and what doesn’t work in efforts to accelerate progress under their commitment. As we researched the best mechanism to facilitate this collaboration, we realized that the industry had already built a viable model in the Outdoor Industry Association’s (OIA) Sustainability Working Group that created the HIGG Index.
In early 2017, Camber Outdoors’ created a CEO Advisory Council, to offer guidance to the organization on priorities and timelines. In August 2017, Camber Outdoors convened members of our board of directors, CEOs from our Peak Partners, and the CEO Advisory Council for a CEO Roundtable. At that gathering we reaffirmed Camber Outdoors’ strength as convener under the creation of the Workplace Equity Working Group. We discussed and molded the creation of a repository of best practices– a Center of Influence, where partners could easily search how other companies have addressed and solved for specific opportunities to increase workplace equity, inclusion, and diversity. The group also understood the limitations of a gender-only focus and asked Camber Outdoors to explore how elements of diversity intersect with gender identity and expression- ethnicity and race, culture, sexual orientation, and physical ability.
