Wilderness Inquiry Diversity & Inclusion Statement
Wilderness Inquiry is committed to becoming a better partner in building a more just, diverse, equitable, and inclusive outdoors. To realize this commitment, Wilderness Inquiry has been working across all internal departments to make structural and cultural changes to our organization through our JEDI Initiative, focused on justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.
Through Wilderness Inquiry’s JEDI Initiative, we pledge to achieve the following goals:
- 20% non-white employee demographic across all positions by the year 2025
- 90% positive or improving satisfaction rating amongst all staff members regarding perceptions of equity and inclusion at Wilderness Inquiry
- Redesign of current programs and engagement models for deeper diversity, equity, and inclusion impact for launch in 2022
As an organization, Wilderness Inquiry acknowledges the systemic barriers and structures of oppression that limit access to outdoor spaces for many. We also acknowledge the responsibility we hold as an organization of privilege in doing our part to break these barriers down.
- The first JEDI Initiative progress report will be shared in December 2021. Please check back then for updates.
