Sender One Cares | Community Programs



About the Sender One Cares Program and Our Commitment

Our purpose is to discover ourselves and connect with others through climbing. We are committed to justice, equity, inclusion, and diversity of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, physical ability, religion, and socio-economic status amongst our climbing community. 

Internally, we are committed to fostering a diverse pool of candidates for jobs, welcoming open and thoughtful dialogue that nurtures understanding across differences, and providing training that builds a culture of diversity and inclusion. 

We are actively focused on breaking down barriers that limit participation in the sport of climbing through partnerships with organizations that share in these ideals and plan events that nurture and support underrepresented groups. Our goal with the Sender One Cares Program is to ensure that this workplace, programming, and member community embody the demographic of our neighborhoods.
