Resilience Online

Separated but Together

Resilience Outdoor Conference is about connecting with and learning skills from community. Although we can not be in community live in person due to COVID we can still share, support and connect. All the elements that make up a community are not solely bound by proximity. Community is what we have in common. Community is in the way we feel when we fellowship. Community is how we take ownership in sharing and caring for each other. 

Now, more than ever is not just a time to survive-- it’s a time to thrive, grow and be prepared for the next challenges that life throws at us.


Join the Resilience community online on May 16th - 17th. 

Resilience Outdoor Conference


About the Conference

The Resilience Outdoor Conference aspires for people from all backgrounds to see themselves reflected in outdoor leaders. We are creating a foundation for Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), and/or the LGBTQ communities to gain comfort and confidence in outdoor skills, while developing leaders through wilderness medicine certificate training, outdoor education, and community resilience.

Share your love out the outdoors; build outdoor skills to lead friends, family, community. 

Grow & Learn

Resilience Outdoor Conference has redesigned what an outdoor conference looks like by centering our community’s growth and ability to reach the summit of the outdoor industry. Resilience is led by community leaders in the outdoor industry. 


Resilience Online is a weekend full of honing in your outdoor competency with community. These are community-led online workshops where participants will pick up relevant skills and knowledge to increase your outdoor preparedness and resilience. You will learn basic and advanced outdoor skills; discuss the challenges and triumphs of being in the outdoors; and leave with a wide variety of information to support your outdoor knowledge. 

The conference are led by POC/LGBTQ for POC/LGBTQ.

About Us

Dreaming Big

The idea of Resilience began as a dream of Queer Nature, the Venture Out Project and Wild Diversity. We wanted to see change in the outdoor landscape. We believe that Black, Indigenous, People of Color, Queer & Trans individuals can have an equal place in outdoor adventures and education.

Our Mission

Wild Diversity's mission is to serve Black, Indigenous, People of Color, Queer & Trans people in building confidence to enjoy and lead in the outdoors. We seek to decolonize outdoor education by creating space for marginalized individuals to grow and thrive. We are building a future and foundation of representation, visualization and empowerment for our communities.
