To mark International Women’s Day 2019, we co-hosted a community event in March at the Brighton Town Hall, celebrating women in sport.
Attracting 200 people, the theme of the event was ‘Balance for Better’ and aimed to raise awareness for a commitment to re-balancing gender inequality.
Victorian of the Year 2018, Susan Alberti AC, was keynote speaker and sat on our panel with four inspiring women, honouring their achievements and contributions to sport.
The event provided a platform for women and their experiences, while celebrating women in sport and strengthening the call for gender equality. It also provided attendees with strategies they could take to advance gender equity in their local communities and sporting clubs.
Feedback from those at the International Women’s Day included:
