Whitewashing and Diverse Representation in the Outdoor Industry: How Social Media and Advertising Impact Inclusion in Outdoor Sports
Friday, October 23rd, 12-1pm
George Jutras will be leading a discussion on the role that diversity in media plays in inclusivity in outdoor communities. We'll be touching on the impact of years of whitewashing in the advertising of outdoor equipment companies as well as the role that social media plays in shaping what the outdoor community is and who belongs to it. We'll also be discussing what potential role models are doing to address the lack of diversity in their outdoor communities.
