Boronia Hawks launch Gender Equity Plan

We have a proud Club history, with many memorable milestones achieved. This 2021 season sees another milestone being the first season that Senior Women’s and Development football teams and four netball teams have taken the field and court.


The benefits of the increase in our player numbers are many and a re-evaluation of our facilities and the way that the Club operates has been necessary. The allocation of resources to all of our sporting teams and meeting the needs of our volunteers and members is critical in creating a Club environment that is welcoming, family-friendly and inclusive, that gives all the best chance of experiencing success.


As a strategic approach to achieve this, the Board is pleased to present the BHFNC Gender Equity Plan. The plan links to the club’s vision statement “Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club is one club; working together for success, on and off the field”.


The plan will evolve and develop over time, with the needs of the Club. Feedback and suggestions are welcomed and should be directed to Scott Nicholas, Club Chairperson or Karen Little, Director Community and Inclusion.

  • Candyce Wright, the Club’s Female Football Co-ordinator;
  • and Alice for her work with Foothills Community Care.

The Award is sponsored by EACH – Eastern Access Community Health and the award function will be held in the New Year when the nominees can receive the recognition that they deserve in front of friends, relatives, and colleagues. 

Boronia Hawks are absolutely committed to active participation of women and girls across the Club and are also pleased to have so many women contributing to the Club in a voluntary capacity on our Board and Committees. Our Gender Equity Plan is an important step as we move forward in this area and both Karen and Candyce have made significant contributions in promoting awareness throughout the Club.

Please join us all in congratulating all three finalists.
