Your support carried us through 2020. Thank you!
Resilience Online was a great success! We had two full days of online workshop. You all join us from all over the world with over 300 hundred participants from North America and all over Europe. Thank you for joining us and being a part of our vision for a diverse outdoors. Thank you to our workshop leaders and event organizers for the warm energy you put into the work. We are excited for Resilience 2021!
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.
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.
“I'm really amazed by how resourced Resilience was, from registration sliding scale fees, scholarships, gear rental to the quality of workshops and workshop leaders.”
“Food choices were amazing! Everyday I was excited for meal time! I also thought all of the finances were very well spent. I enjoyed it all.”
“It was perhaps the first time in my life I had done a large group activity where I felt like I could completely be myself. I liked the overall feeling of community.”
“I loved the place and land, I loved the array of workshops offered, I loved the communal food, I loved how many POC were present.”
“I liked all the community I came across. I felt safe and well informed. I enjoyed all the workshops!”
“I enjoyed the welcoming atmosphere, the accessibility, generosity, preparedness and well thought out set up, the amazing workshops. And, most importantly, the ways that Resilience really centered POC LGBTQ folks' experience.”
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.
