Melbourne University Sport's Strong Women program promotes the meaningful inclusion of women students across all levels of sport and active recreation – as participants, athletes, managers, leaders, coaches, umpires, and volunteers.
The Strong Women Network
The Strong Women Network is an exciting mentorship program which matches current women student-athletes with women from the University of Melbourne community who have been involved in high performance sport. The network enables women students-athletes to develop crucial leadership and vocational skills, contacts, and career pathway opportunities through mentoring.
Identified benefits of participating in the network include:
Career planning and professional development
Introduction to new professional networks
Increase your confidence in networking and your professional communication skills
Working through problems from a new perspective
Translating leadership skills as an athlete into your professional career
Practical advice that will help you find a job
Expressions of interest for the 2023 Strong Women's Network are now open and will close on Sunday 6 August 2023.
