Established in 2011 by current World Cup Bouldering Champion and MBE Shauna Coxsey, and co-directed by climber and BMC Vice President Emma Flaherty, the Women’s Climbing Symposium (WCS) is open to female climbers of all abilities.

Participants will have the opportunity to hear from inspirational speakers, access a range of coaching workshops delivered by some of the best in the industry and connect with other climbers, all with the aim of furthering women’s progression in the sport.

Headline speakers include Lisa Rands, US National Champion and World Cup winner, Shauna Coxsey alongside five-time Olympian Jo Pavey. WCS co-director Shauna Coxsey commented,

‘We can’t imagine a more appropriate speaker for this year’s theme of goal-setting and are delighted that Jo can join us to talk on the subject. Not only has she achieved so many of her professional goals, but she has done so in tandem with raising two children and returning to her sport to win again at the highest level.’
