Rogers, Elizabeth Bond; Taylor, Jason; Rose, Jeff
Journal of Outdoor Recreation, Education, and Leadership, v11 n2 p134-150 2019
This study examined the results of the diversity and inclusion (D&I) survey administered to the Association of Outdoor Recreation and Education (AORE) membership in the fall of 2016. The purpose of the study was to discover the current perceptions and experiences regarding D&I of the AORE membership, which is made up primarily of outdoor education professionals and students in higher education outdoor programs. Additionally, the study looked at current D&I programming in outdoor programs, what has been most and least successful, and what barriers may be in place for the creation of an inclusive environment for underrepresented populations. The survey included quantitative and qualitative responses. Findings and implications of the study will contribute to scholarship and practice around D&I in the field of outdoor education.
