“I enjoyed working with the State Government on the Inquiry into Women and Girls in Sport and Active Recreation and seeing the outcomes being rolled out, including the additional money that has come for facilities, pathways for women in leadership roles and the establishment of the Office for Women in Sport and Recreation. I’m really proud of the small role I played and seeing something concrete come from all that work is very rewarding for me.” . Peggy O'Neal following the exciting announcement that she has been appointed as an Officer (AO) of the Order of Australia for her distinguished service to Australian Football, to superannuation and finance law, and to the advancement of women in leadership roles. .

“I sincerely appreciate the support from the #ChangeOurGame scholarship program that has enabled me to attend this professional development course. The course content was highly beneficial to my #development both #personally and #professionally for my journey into future #leadership roles. This transformational program focused on enhancing a wide range of skills from discovering your own personal communication style, to navigating difficult conversations, negotiation skills and presenting with a purpose. . “It’s great time for #women in #sport and #recreation and I am grateful that we have been given the opportunity to enhance our leadership development. I strongly encourage other females to back themselves when new opportunities arise and step outside their comfort zone like I did and will continue to do!” - Michelle Hui, Victorian Open Manager at @golfaust and a recent scholarship recipient. . Michelle attended ‘Your Leadership Voice: Women In Focus' business executive course at @monashbusiness.
