Bridging the Gender Gap in Australian Sport

Research from the Australian Sports Commission has found that 69 percent of kids under 14 play an organised sport. But as kids grow, so too does the gender gap in professional Australian sports.

The Imagination Gap, a report commissioned by Atlassian and the Women’s AFL League, outlines the importance of playing sport for confidence, teamwork and professional success. So how can we ensure that more women and girls participate?

Aubrey Blanche is head of Diversity and Inclusion at Atlassian and was on 2ser Breakfast to talk about this gender gap and how the increase in professional women’s’ leagues is slowly changing the game.
