The North Face
We believe everyone has the right to explore. Our partnership is working to break down barriers and to help young people from all backgrounds connect to the great outdoors. Together we want to create a pipeline of young explorers, passionate about big adventure in the wild.
EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO EXPLORE
The North Face are championing Outward Bound's diversity project - helping us to understand why some groups are under represented in the outdoor sector and how we can remedy this. We are committed to diversifying our instructor workforce and creating effective pathways into our organisation and the industry. This year our partnership focuses on supporting individuals from black and ethnic minority backgrounds to experience our courses, and follow a programme of support into the sector. The lack of diversity in the outdoors cannot be solved overnight, but together, we can help pave the way.
She moves mountains
In 2018, The North Face launched a campaign to inspire the next generation of female explorers in partnership with Outward Bound.
We provided opportunities for hundreds of young women to experience the magic of the outdoors and connect to nature, whilst developing their strength of character, compassion, communication and ability to overcome adversity.
Check out this short video to see how The North Face sparked a desire in these young women to make the outdoors a meaningful part of their lives.
