Camber Outdoors is striving for workplace equity in the active-outdoor industries by elevating and accelerating women’s leadership—from backcountry to boardroom. They’re ushering in a new paradigm from the C-suite down, and at the same time, they’re helping women pair a passion for the outdoors with a career in the active-outdoor industries (they created a job board made just for women + outdoor industry jobs). Let’s talk details about how this organization is moving the dial in women’s leadership and workplace equity.
The Camber Outdoors CEO Pledge
A cultural shift in women’s leadership needs executive commitment—that’s why Camber Outdoors introduced the CEO Pledge in 2015. It’s a national, thought-leading initiative that provides a platform for companies to establish women’s leadership as a strategic business imperative. Coming up at Outdoor Retailer + Snow Show, their Thought-Leader Keynote will gather industry leaders to share their insights, lessons learned, and progress under the pledge.
The Career Center
The Camber Outdoors Career Center helps women turn their passion for the outdoors into their profession and brings talented women of all backgrounds into the active-outdoor industries. While the CEO Pledge works at the executive level to cultivate workplace equity, the Career Center activates women’s leadership at all levels and promotes job openings from partner companies who have committed to women’s leadership as a priority.
Programming for Future Leaders
Camber Outdoors has top-notch resources for women who aspire to either join or be promoted in the active-outdoor industries. Their Career Center and Camber Exchange networking events help women looking to join the industry, while their Professional Mentoring Program and entrepreneur showcase, Pitchfest, highlight current leaders and cultivate rising stars in leadership.
Building a Community
