If the outdoors truly are for all to visit and a venue for experiencing personal growth, joy, and adventure, we need to see more diversity in outdoor leadership to represent better all life walks. Outdoor leaders are educators, guides, and other professionals who become the face - the representation of humankind experiencing the outdoors. The mission and values of Verascapes confirm that representation matters as much as high technical standards for the modern outdoor professional.  I am proud to be part of an advisory board that is heartfelt in its dedication to training future outdoor leaders with these sentiments in mind.
