Inclusivity Update, 8/3/2020: Video of Our 7/28 Zoom Meeting with Climbers of Color and LGBTQ+ Climbers
On July 28, we met via Zoom with climbers. We all decided to keep the meeting a little small in terms of participants to limit Zoom chaos, but climbers of color and LGBTQ+ climbers had voices there. It was an opportunity for us to hear their concerns, to learn from their experiences, and to ask questions about how they think NRAC should evolve. It was not all smiles and unicorns, but we believe it was ultimately productive, instructive and helpful for us to hear. The meeting was recorded, and you can view that recording here.
We have an NRAC board of directors meeting scheduled for tonight, 8/3/2020, and most of the items we'll discuss will be matters of inclusivity. Route names and more are on the docket, as we decide what direction we will go in as an organization. So please stay tuned for an update to this blog on that meeting as well!
