Michelle Redfern gets stuff done, including taking your diversity plan from conversation to action.

Michelle combined 20 years of executive leadership & sports directorship experience along with a passion for gender equality to create a unique enterprise to advance women in business & sport. Advancing Women is an advisory practice that assists sporting and business organisations move gender diversity from conversation to action.

 Michelle has worked with major AFL clubs to design & deliver events, workshops and female leadership programs focussed in inclusion, diversity and high performance. In addition, Michelle is an experienced sports board director who is currently on the board of Williamstown Football Club, member of the Football Sub-Committee and board lead for development of the female game in the Western Suburbs and beyond. Michelle previously held a director’s role with the Gippsland AFL League, where she established the VWFL in Gippsland and she was association secretary of one of the largest incorporated netball clubs in SE Melbourne for 8 years. Michelle ‘gets’ sports, leadership and the benefits of diversity and inclusion. Michelle makes things happen.

If you are a sports or business leader who is struggling to gain traction, has had limited success  advancing women into leadership or if your current initiatives are stalling, then consider engaging Advancing Women to run a diagnostic and design process for your organisation.
