This morning, Outdoors Victoria attended the Women in Sport Breakfast. We heard powerful words about resilience, encouragement and advocating for yourself from inspiring Aussie women in sport: Chair of Surfing Australia Layne Beachley AO, Olympic gold medalist in rowing Lucy Stephan, Olympic gymnast Emily Whitehead and Paralympic swimmer Ellie Cole.
We also heard about the necessary work OWRA is doing to increase women’s representation in sports from community to Olympic level and ensure that equal opportunities are provided for women in sports. Their Change Our Game Scholarship Grants Program is currently open for applications until the 25th of October. The Program aims to support women to undertake educational opportunities that will enable them to take on paid or volunteer roles in the sport and active recreation sector.
