DEI Information Session – Dec. 1st, 2020

Tues. Dec. 1st, 7:00pm-8:30pm

Curious about what Justice, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion looks like in the outdoors world? Wondering how you can be apart of this work? WMCC and Briana Blanchard of the Red River George Climbers Coalition are hosting an info session to explore these topics! Join us for a discussion on the framework for Justice, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion in the climbing world, ways this work fits into the Western MA climbing community and an open space for questions and conversation.

Briana lives in Cincinnati and has been climbing in the Red since 2014. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Miami University and has been working in non-profit for five years.  Briana enjoys sport, bouldering, and traditional climbing, and when she isn’t outside she can be found on her basement training wall or in the local gym, accompanied by her husband and their son, Atticus. Look her up on Instagram @Dirtbagmomma.

Community Ascension Project – Community Presentation

The Community Ascension Project conducted a series of workshops on collaborative climbing route development and crag stewardship practices held over 6 weekends in southern New Hampshire.  You are invited to join a presentation by the organizers of the event: Kumi Wauthier, Dolci Mascolo and Bill Fogel.  Learn about the program and engage in discussions on next steps.

The project has the following objectives:

  • Promote inclusive community based crag development practices
