Staying inclusive in the outdoor industry

June 10, 2024

inclusive group of women
A recent article in the New York Times has talked about the shocking abuse some women have faced in the climbing community. While we are shocked and appalled by the harrowing details of their experiences, we appreciate there is still a lot that needs to be done across the outdoor industry as a whole.

While we are only a small cog in that machine, in response to this article. we wanted to reassure you about how we are helping women to experience the great outdoors in a safe, inclusive, environment.

Here are a few facts about DTC that you might not know:

  • The day-to-day running of DTC is 100% women-led. It will be another woman on the end of the phone or replying to your emails!
  • 77% of our tour managers are women.
  • The majority of our participants are women.
  • An increasing number of our in-country local guides are now women.
  • We work with trusted local agents who are required to comply with our health and safety requirements.
