Thought-provoking since 2015

Welcome to Terra Incognita Media where we deliver nuanced feminist analysis about issues surrounding race, class, and gender in response to the outdoor industry.

Intersectionality in the Outdoor Industry

Intersectionality in the Outdoor Industry

Terra Incognita previously hosted a three part workshop series called "Intersectionality in the Outdoors" where we explored topics centering on inclusion and equity in the Outdoor Industry.

Together we  explored the implications associated with these components in ways that many may not have had a chance to address in daily life. What is the primary thing keeping us from having these important conversations? Often it’s our lack of experience which can be uncomfortable for some of us.  But just like with climbing, running, mountain biking, growth requires stepping outside of our comfort zones. Terra Incognita provides the space, structure, and support to encourage this growth! Participants are invited to express themselves, explore, listen, absorb, and learn. We are all in this together. 

Goal: Build inclusive “play, work, thrive” environment.

Topics: Building shared language: intersectionality, patriarchy, white supremacy, heteronormativity, microaggressions, inclusivity, exclusivity, segregation, integration, paternalism, safety, consent

Time: 2.5 hours

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore intersectionality

  • Become familiar with language that helps us navigate issues in the workplace and our lives when they arise

  • Deepen our connection in community through providing tools and shared language

  • Build capacity for healthy relationships, and confidence in communication
