Women's Outdoor Leadership Course
50% of Outward Bound participants are female but only 20% of our instructional team are. Recognising our traditional masculine roots, we're acting to change the gender imbalance in our workforce. We spoke to practitioners, academics, national governing bodies, experts outside the outdoor sector and most importantly women who want to work in the outdoors before launching our Women's Outdoor Leadership Course in 2019.
This ten week course is about personal adventure and development, with opportunities for gaining group experience, mentoring from experienced instructors and the support and learning that comes from sharing this experience with other women.
In 2021 the places on this course were generously funded by Generation Green and Arc'teryx.
