Inclusion Discussion Meet-Ups

SIA is launching a six-month series of exploration and conversation on inclusion. We invite you to join us on the journey.


During these one-hour, monthly zoom meet-ups, you will be guided through a series of thought-provoking and engaging discussions on what it means to be inclusive, what inclusion looks like for the winter outdoor community and how to practice inclusion in your daily life.

Lead by expert Dr. Gerilyn Davis of Inclusion on the Slopes, each session will be based on short, prescribed articles and/or videos that are fast and easy to digest yet contain important insights that will help guide and empower you on your inclusion journey.

Come to as many sessions as you can; meet-ups are open to all who are looking to embrace a more inclusive mindset for the benefit of the winter outdoor community!
