Adelaide White Ribbon Breakfast
Friday 22 November, Adelaide Convention Centre

Sport is a critical channel for embedding respectful relationships, gender inclusion and the prevention of violence against women.  Millions of Australians play or are involved in sport at some time in their lives and, as a result, sport can be a powerful and influential vehicle for growing safer and more respectful communities.

The Adelaide White Ribbon Breakfast will this year bring together a diverse and interactive panel from across AFL, AFLW, NRL and Soccer to promote the positive role men can play in fostering respect and gender equality across our sporting cultures.
