Did you know that around 10% of climbers on 8000m peaks are women? Despite gains for women in many areas of society, when we look at the top, we see a lack of equal representation. This #internationalwomensday, I’m inspired by the women who have paved the way and encouraged me to see myself on the highest peaks, including @melissaarnot, the first US woman to climb Everest without oxygen, pictured here. This spring, @rob.lea and I are calling our climb of Everest a #climbforequality to highlight the role that men and people of all genders can play in supporting women’s leadership. Our goal is get 1000 people to learn about implicit bias and how to disrupt it, and do a post with hashtag #climbforequality by the end of the year. Want to learn support?
