What is the Rise Study?

The Rise Study is an international inquiry into risk, inclusion and psychological safety.


Led by Rachel Reimer (she/they), MA Leadership Studies, PhD candidate, this is a project of the Australian Centre for Culture, Environment, Society and Space at the University of Wollongong, New South Wales Australia. 

Interested in adding your voice to the study? We're seeking applicants who are:

 1. A guide or avalanche worker from an IFMGA member country (not sure? Click here for the country list). 


2. A gender or sexual minority (a member of the LGBTQ2SIA+ community, or a woman). 


3. A racial minority in the profession (a non-white person). 


4. A workplace trauma survivor (rockfall, avalanche, or other mountain trauma).






With special thanks for collaboration and support from the International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations, Canadian Mountain Holidays, the Canadian Avalanche Association, the American Mountain Guides Association, and the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides.
