Strong Women

Strong Women offers a range of participation and leadership opportunities for women students.

The Strong Women program promotes the meaningful inclusion of women students across all levels of sport and active recreation at Melbourne University Sport – as participants, athletes, managers, leaders, coaches, umpires, and volunteers.

The Strong Women Network

Our Network focuses on developing strong mentor/mentee relationships to help students with their crucial leadership and vocational skills, networks and career pathway opportunities. We warmly welcome Trans-women and non-binary people to the Network also. Applications for Semester 1 2022 are now open. More information and registration here.
