At the January 2020 Outdoor Retail + Snow Show in Denver, Nick Sargent, SIA President, announced that diversity, equity, and inclusion are an important focus not only for SIA, but for the winter outdoor industry.
“Building an inclusive winter industry is not just a moral imperative, it’s a business imperative,” said Nick Sargent, SIA President. “The entire industry must work together to chart a path for positive change, to create a welcoming and inclusive experience for all in the winter outdoor community.”
