Sport has the power to set new benchmarks and drive positive social change, one being equal representation in sport.

Through striving to achieve gender equity in sport it sets an important tone for the wider Australian public. It also opens doors for the next generation, shakes up unconscious bias and helps advocate for respectful behaviour towards women.
