2021 Orange Round Ambassadors
This year’s Orange Round campaign will include ambassadors from a range of different sports who are displaying gender equality in action and they are showcasing the positive change we want to see more of in our community.
Our ambassadors are individuals within the Gippsland Community who are demonstrating that sport thrives when we don’t restrict people to rigid gender roles. We are celebrating these people for the roles which they are undertaking.
