PSIA-AASI commits to fostering an inclusive community that welcomes and encourages women to excel within the association and industry. While the percentage of snowsports participants is equal male-to-female, the male-to-female ratio of PSIA-AASI members is 62% to 31%. PSIA-AASI partnered with Colorado-based research firm RRC Associates to send female members a 23-question survey designed to examine women’s experiences within PSIA-AASI. The survey’s key findings are presented in the Women Belong on the Mountain Report.
To support women, PSIA-AASI will ensure its education, training, recruitment, and retention efforts facilitate belonging. By establishing a more equitable pipeline and creating attainable pathways for success, PSIA-AASI is working to inspire and shape the future of the organization.
