from
the
inside
out

Following the injustices to George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, we promised to work from the inside out to listen, learn, and make changes to better support Black experiences and uplift their voices in outdoor spaces and beyond.

Change comes from within—and we’re committed to supporting our internal community, local community, and outdoor community at large. This is our pledge.

We will continue to refine our talent acquisition process to connect with more diverse candidates. As we become a more diverse organization, we pledge to have our leadership team accurately reflect the diversity of our employee base.

We will improve diversity and inclusion training for our employees, as well as host a speaker series at our HQ to help give them the tools they need to further their learning and skill set on a consistent basis.

We will use our digital platforms to amplify Black voices in the outdoor community by creating educational and business opportunities for Black content creators and storytellers.

We will create a climbing program dedicated to providing outdoor and educational opportunities for underprivileged BIPOC youth from our local community in Richmond, California. We recognize the barriers of entrance into climbing, and will focus our efforts on those closest to us.

We will partner with Black-owned companies for our local MHW outsourced needs, including facilities for events, catering, and printing.

We will continue to support organizations representing diversity in the outdoors. We are proud to support Brown Girls Climb and will seek future opportunities and events to promote inclusion amongst our community.

From June 3, 2020 through July 31, 2020, when an employee chooses to make a donation to 501[c]3 non-profits focused on addressing racial and social justice, we will double match the contributions, up to $1,000. After July, our parent company, Columbia Sportswear Company (CSC), will continue to match employee donations, up to $1000 per year. Through CSC, we will also make donations to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and the Marshall Project. We seek to advance our country’s understanding of racism and its root causes and to promote equal justice and opportunity.

Rather than performing our normal jobs, we dedicate Juneteenth for our employees to honor, celebrate, and better educate themselves around the historical context and importance of this day.
