SHAPE: The Outdoors Still Has a Major Diversity Problem

Category: News Coverage

The reality is that the outdoor industry as a whole has a huge diversity problem, and it's a multifaceted issue.

For example, although people of color account for about 40 percent of the U.S. population, close to 70 percent of people who visit national forests, national wildlife refuges, and national parks are white, according to the National Health Foundation. Black people are the most underrepresented group in these outdoor spaces.
