Event description

Description

Dianella Health is proud to be backing female participation in sport with the help of two household names in Australian football for the ‘Respect: Join the Club – Getting gender in the game’ forum.

Aussie rules icon and passionate prevention of violence against women advocate Phil Cleary will emcee the ‘Respect: Join the Club’ forum and lead a discussion with Carlton AFLW star Darcy Vescio.

Vescio, the leading AFLW goal kicker and Most Valuable Player nominee, will share her AFLW experience and reflect on her part in the cultural shift taking place within the sport.

Cleary, a legendary player and coach with VFA/VFL club Coburg, has been at the forefront of challenging male violence against women since the murder of his sister at the hands of her ex-boyfriend 30 years ago. He has been a major component of Dianella’s ‘Respect: Join the Club’ campaign, visiting Tullamarine, Jacana, Craigieburn, Westmeadows and Roxburgh Park football clubs.

The event will also see the launch of the ‘Respect: Join the Club’ video, which showcases the work EDFL clubs are undertaking to make football a level playing field for women, men, boys and girls in Hume.

A very limited number of free tickets are available. Dinner included. RSVP essential
