The new wave of outdoor leaders is here. Through grassroots activism, determination and immense passion, this growing group of JEDI (justice, equity, diversity and inclusion) changemakers continues to shift the conversation about who goes outside and how. The Spark 2020 Leadership Retreat will bring together stakeholders of the Outdoor JEDI community to connect, network and share their resources. Providing an intentional space for those engaging in JEDI work creates an incredible opportunity to continue to cultivate a common narrative on collective liberation within the outdoors. Our mission is to connect members of the DEI community and equip them with the resources and connections necessary to lead ongoing DEI efforts in a united, supported, and actionable way.
