The 2018 Women in Sport Breakfast took place on Thursday 11 October at the RACV City Club. It was a fantastic event where over 400 people from all across the Victorian sporting industry came together to recognise significant contributions that have increased the participation of women and girls in sport.  This year’s breakfast held even greater significance as it was held on the International Day of the Girl.

Kate Palmer was the keynote speaker for the breakfast. Kate has been a leading figure in the Australian sporting world, with an impressive career at Netball Victoria and Netball Australia  before being appointed CEO of the Australian Sports Commission (now Sport Australia) in 2016. Kate is the first women to be appointed to the role at Sport Australia in the organisations history, and will therefore bring a unique  perspective to the morning.
