Happy International Women’s Day everyone!
We had the privilege of chatting with some extraordinary members of the Gippsland sports community for a new project we’re developing. In honour of this year’s IWD theme, “Cracking the Code: Innovation for a gender-equal future,” we wanted to share some of the inspiring stories and wisdom we gathered from these remarkable women and girls.
Let’s keep pushing for progress and equality!

We chatted with Hannah about her experiences in Soccer and creating a brighter future for the next generation of women and girls by actively creating opportunities and breaking down barriers that hold them back.
