Whether you have been part of the IVY community since the beginning, or you just joined recently, we hope that more than anything it is evident that we care about people. 

We recognize that from the very beginning of our nation to present day, the Black community has been hurt and is hurting; and we see that there is a need larger than just not being racist. As a brand and as individuals who make up this brand, we are committed to the everyday work of being anti-racist.

As a brand it has always been our intention to be inclusive to all people, but in this time we want to make space to let the Black community know that we are listening, we are learning, and we are allies. We acknowledge that this is work we should have been even more intentional in since the start of IVY, but it is our privilege to do it now. We are listening and learning how we can take part in this fight for equality, and we invite all of our white and non-Black friends to join us in this.

To get started, we have made a list of a few resources that we are going to dig into and get informed. We acknowledge that it is our job to learn, get informed, and listen.

Have you ever found yourself being drawn to something just...wild, extreme, or dangerous? I love going way too fast, heights, motorcycles, boats, cliff jumping, sharks and anything that gets my blood pumping! For as long as I can remember, I wanted to get certified in skydiving, and I made it my goal for 2020.

I was talking to a friend the other day and I was telling her about IVY. She couldn’t understand the trips and how they worked. She couldn’t believe that we would just open up a trip and ANYONE who wanted to join, could. She definitely couldn’t believe that we’d never had a bad experience doing things this way. Not even once.

Okay, this one is for my ladies who love to adventure, but also just really like to look good in photos after you scale that mountain, or as you drive a 4x4 through sand dunes.
