The main governing body of American competition climbing, USA Climbing, recently hired Rebecca Ingraham as the organization’s new Education Manager. A press release noted that Ingraham will work “to implement educational and certification programs,” and “increase women’s representation” at USA Climbing—including in matters of routesetting, coaching, judging, and belaying.

Ingraham previously worked at the United States Center for SafeSport, a nonprofit organization that aids numerous sports’ national governing bodies—including USA Climbing—in identifying and ending bullying, harassment, sexual misconduct, and other forms of abuse.

USA Climbing’s CEO, Marc Norman, said of Ingraham’s hire, “As USA Climbing continues to grow and with our debut in the Olympic Games on the horizon, we are very excited to have Rebecca come on board.”

Ingraham is the most recent in a number of hires at USA Climbing this year, including Rachel Owens as the organization’s Collegiate and Paraclimbing Series Manager, and Kelly Feilke as the Vice President of Marketing, Communications, and Development.
