The Culture

The best thing about working at Deckers is: Greening Youth Foundation is a place where diversity is an active priority, not just a goal.
When we’re not working, we’re: Attending music festivals and traveling the world
What we’re reading: “Engage, Connect, Protect: Empowering young diverse environmental leaders” by Angelou Ezeilo (coming Fall 2019!)
What we’re listening to: Fela Kuti (classic!)
If they made a movie about our workplace, it would be called: “I Like Big Parks And I Can Not Lie”
Inclusion in the outdoors matters because: The land was originally protected by indigenous people and later cared for by enslaved African people. Being in the great outdoors does not have a specific gender or color but it is an opportunity to thrive and connect to communities and conservation.     

Five years down the line, it’s our hope that: Greening Youth Foundation will be in partnership with every major outdoor retailer and provide diversity and inclusion on every continent in the world.
