The South West Women in Sport Leadership program will provide leadership training to 25 women who are currently involved in sporting clubs, local government or the broader sport sector.
Lauren is the captain of the Victorian Roller Derby League, who won the World Championship title in 2017. She also works as an exercise physiologist.
Lauren started skating in 2012, she first found her interest in Roller Derby after watching the movie ‘Whip It’. She then volunteered at the Victorian Roller Derby League Grand Final as a first aider and was instantly hooked on the sport.
Lauren wants to help young girls and women stay active and to step into leadership roles where they can be equally respected as their male-counterparts are.
"I'm really proud to be a Change Our Game Ambassador. It means to me that young girls have someone to look up to. When I was a kid you didn't really dream of being a female athlete because that wasn't a job title that was up for grabs." - Lauren Foote
