National Ski Patrol Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Policy

The National Ski Patrol values the diversity of its worldwide members, our national office staff, and all our valuable partners. We recognize the power of harnessing collective similarities and differences that help educate our organization and its people to deliver on the National Ski Patrol missions of training and service in a sensitive and culturally competent manner. We are committed to providing a safe environment that includes mental, physical, psychological, and emotional protection.

We will continue to demonstrate our dedication to DEI, valuing the diversity of thought, backgrounds, experiences, gender identities, sexual orientation, and cultures.  This commitment allows us to work locally, across the country, and worldwide to deliver high-quality training and services to the communities we serve.

Our DEI Mission:

The National Ski Patrol will consistently deliver its training and services in a culturally competent manner.

Our DEI Vision:

The National Ski Patrol aspires to be an organization fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion by creating and maintaining a diverse, high-performing workforce of members who reflect all the communities we serve; by cultivating a collaborative, inclusive, and respectful work and volunteer environment that empowers all contributors; and by leveraging diverse partnerships – all of which helps to ensure culturally competent service delivery supported by effective community leadership and engagement. Our efforts will be strengthened through guidance provided by a collection of our own DEI thought leaders who have been charged with establishing our inaugural National Ski Patrol Diversity Advisory Council in the Fall of 2022.
