The Culture

Demographics (Optional): 13,000 members in the Pacific Northwest, currently about 10.5% from communities of color, 48% women. 
The best thing about working at The Mountaineers is: Knowing that our work helps people have transformational experiences in the outdoors that inspire them to share their knowledge with others, pass it forward to the next generation, and protect wild places.
When we’re not working, we’re: Outdoors on adventures.
What we’re reading: Anything published by Mountaineers Books! 
What we’re listening to: Pacific Northwest indie rock and grunge.
If they made a movie about our workplace, it would be called: Adventure with Purpose.
Inclusion in the outdoors matters because: Everyone has the right to have amazing experiences in our wild places.

Five years down the line, it’s our hope that: We will make substantive progress toward becoming a more welcoming, inclusive organization where all people feel they have equal opportunities to achieve their outdoor goals, become part of our staff or board, and be a leader in the ranks of our volunteer instructors.
