When do you feel connected to something greater than yourself?
"I’m an outdoor professional, and an advocate for greater diversity in the outdoor industry and accurate representation of POC in the outdoors in order to positively influence and encourage youth of color. When I’m doing that work, whether individually or on a team, I feel connected to something much greater than myself. Both the mission of the work and the challenge of being in the outdoors."
“Jonny, I very much appreciated your making the space available for us to share and learn from each other and the skill you exhibited in guiding the conversation. Personally, I learned some things I didn’t know before and I came away with some new perspectives on issues that I have thought and cared about for years but that sometimes need the kind of fresh look that this evening’s session provided for me.”
