Systemic racism is embedded into all facets of our society, including the outdoor industry from our tradeshows, our boardrooms, our marketing and in our parks and trail systems. The Black Lives Matter movement has sparked a deep desire to learn, understand and take action to be a part of systemic change. Please come to the OIA Industry

Breakfast to hear and learn from Angelou Ezeilo, one of our country’s most dynamic social entrepreneurs and environmental activists.

Angelou is working to change the face of conservation in the U.S. and help young people find meaningful careers in the outdoors. She is the founder and CEO of the international nonprofit, Greening Youth Foundation, that was created to engage underrepresented youth and young adults while connecting them to the outdoors and careers in the outdoors, conservation and the environmental movement.

She is the author of a new book, Engage, Connect, Protect: Empowering Diverse Youth as Environmental Leaders. Angelou will talk about her work and her book. She will deliver a wake-up call for businesses, activists, educators and policymakers to recognize the work of grassroots activists in diverse communities and create opportunities for engaging with diverse youth as the next generation of stewards of the outdoors.

Angelou will be joined by a group of Greening Youth Foundation interns that will share their experiences and thoughts on the future.
