Dear Outdoor Recreation Community,
Todd Elsworth, Executive Director
DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION:
VALUES WE LIVE BY, GOALS TO ACHIEVE AND STRATEGIES TO GET US THERE
Recreation Northwest requested and received technical assistance from the National Park Service Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance program. Our workgroup produced this document in March 2019 as a result to help guide us and our community.
Parkscriptions has two core values, listed below, each with a goal with associated strategies that express and embody those values.
#1 Increase community health through equitable access to the outdoors.
#2 Providing leadership: We value a “shared-commitment” approach to meet community needs.
Parkscriptions Value Statements: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Definition: Values and principles statements reflect a group’s core beliefs, the deep convictions and priorities that shape its culture and spirit, and inspire and guide its choices in the way it operates to achieve its mission and vision. It helps define the operational culture for employees and volunteers, as well as for donors.
As Executive Director of Recreation Northwest, Todd Elsworth promotes outdoor recreation and brings community together to enjoy, preserve and improve the places where we play. His decades of extensive event production, marketing and writing experience propel this passion. You might bump into him and his daughter Violet while they’re biking, hiking, paddling or skiing in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
