Women in Adventure Sport Conference
Supporting and enabling female participants, coaches and leaders – A sharing of experiences, knowledge and ideas.
Friday 24th November 2017
The conference is aimed at bringing together like minded people (women and men) from the world of Adventure Sport who are interested in exploring women’s participation, with a view to supporting and enabling it. The focus is about supporting and developing more women coaches and leaders within the main disciplines of adventure sports (mountaineering, climbing, paddlesport, biking, snowsport etc). This will include the delivery, facilitation and participation of the associated NGB awards, alongside the participation required to gain experience to partake in these awards. The conference deliverers and facilitators will be women who have proven leadership, coaching and/or research experience in the subject area, and are of course passionate about supporting and inspiring others. All sessions will be run in an interactive way with time created to allow group discussions, social chat and through that individual support.
The over-riding ethos is that this is an event that it is exploring topics and issues key to female participation in a way that values thoughts and opinions from all genders.
