Break the Bias – International Women’s Day

It was a delight to welcome back old grammarian, Gen Dohrmann (Simmons, 2006) as our guest speaker at the International Women’s Day assembly held on Tuesday 8th March to talk about this year’s theme #Breakthebias.

Gen spoke about her role as President of Women Sport Australia, a volunteer, not-for-profit body dedicated to making sport equitable. She spoke about the importance of supporting women in all sports from grassroots to professional and the significance of including men in these conversations. Gen encouraged everyone to take the gender equity sport pledge which asks people to commit to affirmative action to create equity for girls and women in sport.
