The December edition of IJW is now available to the public, without the paywall that accompanies new editions.

In this issue, Wilderness for a Diverse America, guest-edited by ALWRI's Lauren Redmore and Clemson University's Aby Sène-Harper, emerging land management professionals discuss what diversity, equity, inclusion, and access in wilderness means to them; Brett Quin and Erin Drake share their work advancing wilderness accessibility for people with disabilities; and Kimm Fox-Middleton shares a creative solution towards getting early career land management professionals excited about sharing with and learning from a retiring wilderness workforce. Adrienne Lindholm shares the work of the National Park Service to reimagine a more inclusive wilderness concept using a case study of Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska. And, ALWRI's Lauren Redmore, Jaclyn Rushing, Chris Armatas and co-authors lead an effort to understand what wilderness management professionals would like to see from an interagency toolbox for diversity, equity, and inclusion. These are just a few of the exciting contributions in the December double issue!
