KEY NOTE SPEAKER BIO

Nicole Livingstone is one of Australia’s most successful swimmers, notably in the field of backstroke, and has seen success on the international stage on numerous occasions.

In conjunction with her Olympic appearances, Nicole's efforts in the Commonwealth Games were nothing short of outstanding. She remarkably defended 10 consecutive national backstroke titles between 1987-1996 – a record that is still unbroken today.

Nicole retired from her international swimming career in 1996. Nicole was recognised for her incredible success through being awarded an Order of Australia in 1997 as well as an Australian Sports Medal in 2000. Nicole is also a member of the Victorian Women’s Honour. Furthermore, in 2016, Nicole was historically voted into ‘The Carbine Club’ and in 2017 was announced by the Victorian Government as Chair of the Victorian Institute of Sport. Upon retiring from swimming, Nicole also began a long career in media in a variety of roles, including sports commentary at events such as the Olympic and Commonwealth Games as well as hosting shows across several broadcasting stations, including Wide World of Sports, Any Given Sunday and The Project.

In 2017, Nicole was announced as the AFL’s Head of Women’s Football which includes the responsibility of delivering the AFLW competition. Nicole is a mother to three and along with her sister, Karen Livingstone, founded Ovarian Cancer Australia, after their mother sadly passed away from the disease. She is now patron of the organisation.

EVENT FAQs

What's it all about?

As an organisation focused on improving women’s health, supporting vulnerable women and advocating for women’s rights, we feel it is important to celebrate and participate in International Women’s Day. It also offers us the opportunity to fundraise for the Women’s Foundation.

The Women’s Foundation raises funds to support the vital work of the Women’s, Australia’s first and largest specialist hospital for women and newborn babies. Gifts to the Women’s are an integral part of the research, innovation and leadership that brings advances in health care for women. Donations are not used for the hospital’s operating costs or for services or equipment that are government funded.

Supporting the Women’s Foundation will help deliver advancements in health research, technology, programs and equipment.
