If you see it, you can be it.
It's time to elevate the role of womxn in the climbing industry.
The more womxn can find jobs as routesetters, the more young girls and womxn will realize they can consider routesetting as a career path.The more womxn find sponsorship and funding for their projects, the more young girls and young womxn will dream up new projects and summits to reach. The more stories female climbers tell about their climbing experiences, the more young girls and womxn will connect to climbing.
Although womxn represent at least 40% percent of the climbing community at large, in Canada they are still under-represented in routesetting, in coaching and as sponsored athletes. And those who are working are frequently overlooked for advancements into head coaching, head routesetting or upper management.
"Womxn are over-mentored and under-sponsored." - Sallie Krawcheck.
It’s time to change that and Bring In the Girls.
