The Culture

The best thing about working at The Outbound Collective is: Building a product and community that we believe in.

When we’re not working, we’re: Playing Outside.

What we’re reading: : The Messy Middle, by Scott Belsky

What we’re listening to: Everything. Spotify is our friend

If they made a movie about our workplace, it would be called: How Teamwork Makes The Dream Work

Inclusion in the outdoors matters because: The outdoors is meant for everyone, regardless of background, and it should be experienced, enjoyed, and protected by everyone.

Five years down the line, it’s our hope that: There is a significant increase in the outdoor participation rates among our underrepresented communities.
