Dr Jenny Hall


Exploring Pathways for Inclusion:

Jenny is a senior lecturer at York St John University.  She is a cultural geographer, who specialises in the geographies of tourism, leisure, sport and heritage, drawing from across the social sciences. Issues of social and ecological justice are central to her work, and she has focused on the intersectional experiences of inequality in adventure. Working with public agencies, her research has influenced policy in mountaineering organisations in the UK. As an expert in governance and policy in tourism concerning urban heritage, spatial justice and regenerative tourism, she is currently working with national parks on researching climate crisis and conservation through public engagement programmes. Jenny is a fellow of Royal Geographical Society, a mountaineer and a member of Cleveland MRT.  

Jenny will be joining Dr Laura Davies (Calder Valley SRT) and Aneela McKenna (Mór Diversity) in a workshop to explore pathways for inclusion. Since meeting through the Women in Mountain Rescue Group, they have developed a research project exploring the experiences of women in mountain rescue. Their aim is to develop an EDI strategy for MREW which can also be utilised by the wider network of organisations involved in UK search and rescue capabilities. They have received financial support from Leeds Beckett University and York St John University, and are awaiting the outcome of a larger bid for funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

‘We would like to invite you to join us for a themed discussion where you can share your knowledge and experiences. We are keen to hear your thoughts on recruitment, leadership, culture, behaviours and language through the following questions: What does inclusion mean to you? What does an inclusive environment look and feel like? How can we work together to create pathways to achieve this in MR?’
