Diversity, equity and inclusion
Amer Sports strives for diverse, equal, and inclusive (DEI) professional lives for all. We expect all our employees to treat each other and our broad stakeholder network with respect.
A sense of belonging and inclusion forms an essential part of wellbeing and quality of life at work. We at Amer Sports promote equal opportunities for all and have zero tolerance for discrimination of any kind.
We expect all our employees to be aware of diversity, equality, and inclusion (DEI)—as stated in our Code of Conduct. Together, we ensure and maintain work environments that are free from harassment and inappropriate behavior. As part of the Code of Conduct training, all Amer Sports’ employees learn about DEI matters.
Our brands are important drivers of a more inclusive sports industry.
Examples of our brands’ DEI work:
Arc’teryx strives to be a more welcoming space for the LGBTQIA2S+ community.
Within Arct’eryx, the company has two internal Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Committees—one specifically dedicated to the North American Retail teams, and one for the headquarter and global teams. The committees’ focus is to listen to the needs of the organization and develop a strategy and initiatives that bring a broadly inclusive lens to all aspects of the business. To cite an example, JEDI recently partnered with Pride at Work to update the washroom signage to be gender-inclusive.
Arc’teryx is a proud supporter of athletes and ambassadors, especially while they grow in their athletic pursuits and personal lives. The company actively looks to expand their roster to better represent the diverse communities in which we all live, work, and play. Furthermore, Arc’teryx’s retail stores celebrate Pride year-round through partnerships and collaboration with local communities.

“We see Salomon as an innovator in creating a bridge to outdoor recreation for people from all walks of life. It’s a brand that is predominantly seen out in the city streets and trails alike. It’s this blend of sport and style that makes a partnership with Hike Clerb, and the work we’re doing to inspire our creative community to take up space in the outdoors, a perfect match,” shares Hike Clerb founder Evelynn Escobar.
An example of this collaboration bore fruit in June 2021, when 12 SOS Outreach career development program participants across Denver, Vail, and Park City completed interviews, attended the Outdoor Retailer Summer Convention, and received offers for positions at organizations including Armada Skis, Evo, Vail Resorts Retail LLC, Christy Sports, U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team, Park City, and Oberalp Group.
