Olympian and AFL Women’s CEO Nicole Livingstone OAM is one inspirational woman.
And on Friday 9 March, in celebration of International Women’s Day (IWD), we welcomed Nicole to speak at Connect Health & Community and partners’ IWD 2018 event held in Sandringham.
Nicole talked not only about her own personal and career journey, and the obstacles she’s faced along the way, but also shared stories about other truly inspirational sportspeople.
These sportspeople’s cultural backgrounds, ages, experiences and level of physical ability are wildly varied, but they have plenty in common. Like Nicole, they all display a determination to achieve their goals, resilience and fearlessness, a positive mindset, and ultimately, the strength to face and conquer challenges.
At the event, we also celebrated and recognised eight remarkable women from our own community. Women whose resilience, connectedness and understanding in the face of adversity have inspired the creation of a collection of stories: Finding a way: Stories of inspirational women.
In March 2019, Connect Health & Community plans to run another IWD event, and this time the theme will be women in sport. Of course, we’d love you to be involved ‒ whether it’s nominating an inspirational woman for an award or sponsoring the event. If you’d like to be kept informed about our IWD 2019 event, please email Health Promotions Coordinator Jackie Gleeson.
