Who we are

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 achieving equity for all in the outdoors—from senior industry leadership to outdoor recreation participants–from the boardroom to the backcountry.

Founded in 1996 as the Outdoor Industries Women’s Coalition (OIWC), Camber Outdoors has elevated the active-outdoor industries as an employer of choice for the diversity of people who have a passion for the outdoors. Progress happens through innovative and thought-leading programming and initiatives, including the Camber Outdoors CEO Pledge, Pitchfest, Camber Exchanges, and a cross-industry, cross-company Professional 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 200+ 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 diversity of current and future participants.

Our 7,000+ individual members share a love of being outside and active, a passion for protecting the places we play, and a belief that diversity of leadership and equitable and inclusive workplaces are 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.

OUR VALUES

We > Me

We are and bring extraordinary, diverse individuals and perspectives together in collaboration and with respect. We celebrate bright spots and prioritize the organization over our own interests.

Life = Life Outdoors

We shape our lives around the outdoors. We believe a life outdoors makes us better world citizens.

Active Pursuit of Better

Whether it’s in our activities, passions, or at work, we seek to always be better for it. We push for open communication even when it’s tough. We value play and laughter; we fail forward, sweat the details, and strive to sweat (not the just the details) everyday.

Bold and Audacious

We disrupt current conceptions of what is possible and are not willing to settle for the status quo. We think outside the box. We believe making big bets will make history.

Impact Driven

We are business-minded, enterprising, and solution-oriented, fueled by creativity and innovation. If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you.

Meet the Team

We are climbers, skiers, mountain bikers, hikers, snowboarders, backpackers, cyclists, and runners. We love being outside and get out of bed every morning to work towards our vision of an outdoors for everyone.
