This is a gathering that we want to approach differently than how “panels” have been created in the past. This was a collective effort to create a space that we want to see built into the ethos of the “Outdoor Industry”.
The goal of this session is to celebrate, include and acknowledge the progress in motion flowing through the industry and facilitate meaningful connections that will help support that progress into the future.
Although the panel carries the “Full Circle” name, thanks to Philip Henderson and his team’s desire to share their project as an inspirational example, but extend the platform to the many projects being created in tandem.
Facilitated by Langston Clark, creator and host of Entrepreneurial Appetite Podcast. The conversation will kick off with an update and conversation with Phillip Henderson and the Full Circle Everest Expedition team.
We will also get to see and hear from Alex Bailey from Black Outside, Dani Reyes Acosta from the Outlier project and Ron Griswell from HBCU Outside.
There will also be time planned to learn from others in the room to be able to share projects being worked on, any asks or offerings as well as info for anyone to follow up.
The goal is to attract together all of us that have been doing work on inclusion outdoors and those newly bringing a background of inclusive work to the outdoors together with those interested in learning and getting involved.
We hope this is a way to connect and engage without any single entity claiming or dominating the space and is meant to gather for productive exchange rather than a single or branded event.
We invite all interested in learning and offering to be a part of this collaborative presentation of the projects we have connected on. We aim to make this a space to share as well as learn so we can all better support each other in the collective invitation toward a stronger path forward, improved human connection and more intentional interaction with nature and the land. This is a space for US and all are invited.
