Sports Development and Education Australia students took part in the Inspiring Change event at Loftus Centre, with guest speakers including West Coast Fever players Khao Watts and Courtney Bruce.

Former paralympian Jessica Smith and Youth Focus clinic services co-ordinator Nicole Jolly also spoke to the 75 students.

SEDA people and culture general manager Hailey Grimes said the day was an opportunity to focus on the achievements of women past and present.

‘It’s an important day for SEDA staff and students to connect with one another and acknowledge the generations of amazing women who have come before us and the generations of phenomenal women still to come,’ she said. ‘I personally hope it inspires and motivates our staff and students to aspire for greatness.’
