Boronia Hawks are absolutely committed to active participation of women and girls across the Club and are also pleased to have so many women contributing to the Club in a voluntary capacity on our Board and Committees. Our Gender Equity Plan is an important step as we move forward in this area and both Karen and Candyce have made significant contributions in promoting awareness throughout the Club.
Please join us all in congratulating all three finalists.
A working group of sixteen Club members got together last night via Zoom to launch the development of the Club’s Gender Equity Action Plan. The people involved represented all aspects of the Club’s operations and each recognised the benefits that flow on from the effective and equitable participation and integration of girls and women across the Club.
Many thanks to Karen Little and Scott Nicholas for their work in drafting the action plan.
Thank you also to the members of our working group, including Amanda Cellante, Ash Johnson, Bec Allen, Ben Robertson, Candyce Wright, Carly Dymond, David Nicholas, Greg Hannon, Julia Bortoli, Kat McMahon, Kristan Wood, Nathan Allen, Rhianna Little, Samantha Dunkinson, Wayne Preston and Ye Jeffries.
The Club’s Grants Program has had another successful application. We have just been granted funding of $2,960 for a program to support Leadership for Young Women in Football.
The Victorian Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions offered this grant opportunity under the 2019/20 Community Activation Grants Program. We are very grateful for the government’s continued encouragement of community sport, particularly by backing clubs with the booming popularity of football for women and girls. Special thanks go to Claire Dyson from the Office for Women in Sport & Recreation and to Jackson Taylor MP.
As we grow our Women’s Football Program we have identified a number of young players who will benefit enormously from this opportunity to develop their leadership skills through this structured learning aimed specifically at their age group.
Although the leadership development program has been delayed for this season due to the COVID-19 lockdown, funding has been provided so that we can proceed with the training in 2021.
Once again the Club can thank Kerryn Westcott, our Grants Co-ordinator, and Karen Little, Director of Community and Inclusion, for their work in submitting a successful application for the grant. The Club’s Grants Program continues to provide an outstanding benefit in the enhancement of our facilities and membership support programs. Recent grants include:
Boronia Hawks are very pleased to announce that Sam Dunkinson will take up the role as our Boronia Auskick Coordinator for 2019.
Sam is already very well known around the Club as our Junior Veep. Sam is a teacher by profession and is a great fit for this very important role in the Club’s pathway for boys and girls wanting to have a kick with their friends. Sam has a enormous passion for the Club and we are all very fortunate to have her step up for the Hawka. Please get around her!
