Event description

Description

Let's build a gender-balanced sport and recreation sector.

Join us (the Office for Women in Sport and Recreation) to celebrate International Women's Day 2019.

The theme of International Women's Day 2019 is Balance for Better. One way to achieve better balance for women and girls in sport and active recreation is to drive positive change around how women's sport is covered, and how achievements are showcased throughout mainstream media.

Reading the sport section of the newspaper, it is evident that we are far from balanced when it comes to women in sport and the media.

An all-star line-up of speakers has been announced, headlined by leading radio and TV sports broadcaster Tracey Holmes.

Tracey's 30 year career in television and radio has included many impressive roles both in Australia and overseas. She was Australia's first woman to host a national sports programme, was a media advisor for the Sydney Organising Committee for the Olympic Games, and has co-hosted the SBS presentation of the FIFA World Cup. Tracey is currently a presenter on ABC news radio and hosts her own weekly sports podcast, The Ticket.

She will join our fantastic line-up of speakers on a panel at the lunch discussing ideas and insights around how we can level the playing field for women and girls across all levels of sport and recreation.

The panel includes a broad range of industry professionals with varying backgrounds across a range of sports:

  • Mel Jones OAM - Former Australian cricketer, leading international cricket commentator and Change Our Game Ambassador

  • Stef Hanson - Director and Founder of WITSUP.com (women in triathlon)

  • Patrick Shaw - Former professional cyclist and leading cycling commentator

  • Steve Whately – Director of Consulting at Nielsen Sports & Entertainment

The Office for Women in Sport and Recreation is excited to be working with Victoria University who are a supporting partner for this event.

Join us from 12pm for informal networking and canapes, to start proceedings at 12.30pm.

A sit down 2 course lunch and beverage package is included. Get in early to take advantage of early bird ticketing. Discounts also apply to bulk purchases (10 or more).
