WHO WE ARE
Camber Outdoors is committed to the vision of Everyone’s Outdoors. With our partner companies, individual members, and supporters we are accelerating and elevating women’s equality through leadership and participation in the outdoors, from the backcountry to the boardroom.
Founded in 1996 as the Outdoor Industries Women’s Coalition (OIWC), Camber Outdoors is the only national organization dedicated to achieving women’s equality in the active-outdoor industries. Through innovative and thought-leading programming and initiatives, including the Camber Outdoors CEO Pledge, Pitchfest, Camber Exchanges, and our cross-industry, cross-company mentoring program, we are collectively ensuring our partner companies, the industries we serve, and the places we play are truly Everyone’s Outdoors, where diverse talent thrives.
Our 180+ corporate partners are thought-leading companies that recognize the active-outdoor industries will drive greater innovation and solve bigger problems when leadership teams reflect the gender diversity of current and future participants.
Our 5,000+ individual members are women and men with a shared love of being outside and active, a passion for protecting the places we play, and a belief that women’s leadership is critical to growth and sustainability.
Our staff is a team of climbers, skiers, mountain bikers, hikers, snowboarders, backpackers, cyclists, and runners. We love being outside and get out of bed every morning to live our mission and work toward our vision of an outdoors for everyone.
