ORR launches Outdoor Workforce Hub

The Outdoor Recreational Roundtable (ORR) recently announced the launch of a new Outdoor Workforce Hub, developed with support from The VF Foundation. The launch follows a year spent gathering perspectives from ORR members, outdoor industry leaders and community partners to help illuminate fulfilling career pathways in the outdoor industry, identify workforce priorities for all outdoor organizations, and support the 4.5 million professionals who connect people to the outdoors across the $862 billion outdoor recreation economy.

“ORR is grateful to The VF Foundation and all of our members and partners who helped make this fantastic new resource a reality,” said Jessica Wahl Turner, president of ORR. “From ensuring that the outdoor workforce is diverse and inclusive, to identifying needs like access to affordable housing, creating training programs to fill skills gaps and combating myths and stigmas about careers in the industry, ORR is proud to be leading the way and seeking collaborative solutions to our shared challenges.”
