Emma Ross


The Well HQ

Dr Emma Ross was, until recently, the Head of Physiology at the English Institute of Sport, supporting practitioners working across Olympic and Paralympic sports and leading the EIS Female Athlete Programme. This programme aimed to empower coaches, athletes and sports practitioners to better understand the exercising female, how to capitalise and cope with her physiology and psychology in the context of sport.

Emma recently co-founded The Well HQ, to continue this mission to tackle the taboo’s, educate and empower people in sport and beyond, about topics such as periods and the menstrual cycle, breast health, pelvic floor health and what it takes for girls and women to thrive in sport, in health and in life. Emma sits on the Chartered Institute for Physical Activity and Sport Professional Development Board, is an external examiner for the University of Portsmouth and is on the Business Advisory Board for the University of Southampton. In 2021 Emma was awarded the Sunday Times Sportswomen of the Year Changemaker Award for her work to make sport better for girls and women.

Emma Ross will be speaking at the following sessions.
