With female representation in Victoria, now over 50% and climbing, females are an integral part of the past, present and future of the lifesaving movement. We celebrate the many roles and facets that females contribute, pay tribute to the exceptional role of our female volunteers and acknowledge the opportunity that lifesaving brings for females to be active, participate, develop and lead.
This initiative is something the organisation deems as extremely important part of the future development of our female members and staff. This is another step forward for the lifesaving movement in ensuring that females have the skills, confidence and support to fulfil their future lifesaving and professional ambitions. Moreover to share experiences, inspire and be inspired.
The LSV Female Leadership Network (FLN) is open to all females 18+ within the movement including staff and volunteers members from all roles and facets that have a genuine interest in networking, personal growth and professional development.
