Breeanna Brock was the first female CEO to be appointed in the AFL. In her five-year tenure in female football, she has cemented Queensland’s reputation as one of the powerhouse states for women’s AFL. By establishing the Brisbane Lions inaugural women’s team, who went on to play an undefeated debut AFLW season, Breeanna has created a full playing pathway for the women and girls of Queensland.
With access to this elite, high performing environment, females are no longer forced to abandon a game they love due to lack of professional opportunity. Above all, Breeanna’s work is slowly dismantling age-old thinking around female representation in sport, to create a more level, gender-balanced, playing field.
