Chloe Dalton

Guest Speaker

This year’s guest speaker is Chloe Dalton - multi-sport athlete, Olympic Gold Medalist, current AFLW player, Founder of the [Female] Athlete Project, and newly-founded author. 

Chloe Dalton is one of Australia's few triple sport elite athletes. After playing basketball in the WNBL with the Sydney Uni Flames, Chloe transitioned to Rugby, where she debuted for the Australian Rugby 7s team in 2014. 

At the Rio 2016 Olympics, Dalton won Gold with the Australian 7s team and was awarded an Order of Australia Medal for Service to Sport. She was also recognised as Australia's top Rugby 7s player in 2017, winning the Shawn Mackay Medal. 

Chloe then crossed codes again to Aussie Rules, making her debut in 2019 for Carlton in the AFLW. She was recently named Runner-Up in the Carlton Best and Fairest Awards for the 2020 AFLW season. Chloe currently plays AFLW for the GWS Giants.

As well as being an elite athlete, Chloe created a platform to recognise and celebrate the stories and achievements of female athletes, in an attempt to address the gender inequalities that exist within the sports media space. The [Female] Athlete Project is now the fastest growing women's platform in the country, with 123k followers on Instagram. 

Recently, Chloe released two new books launching her into the 'Author' category:

  • Girls Don't Play Sport - the game-changing, defiant rise of women's sport, and why it matters
  •  A-Z of Who I Could Be - 26 athletes that every little kid [and big adult] should know

Growing up on the Northern Beaches and still remaining local, we are excited to have Chloe speak at this year's International Women's Day Breakfast event.

Funds raised through raffle ticket sales at the event will be donated to Northern Beaches Women's Shelter and Women & Children First.


Northern Beaches Women's Shelter

The Northern Beaches Women's Shelter (NBWS) was established by our community. It exists to serve our community. It survives because of our community.

NBWS is a safe haven, supporting homeless women so they can rebuild their lives, reclaim their independence and rejoin society. Formerly Manly Women’s Shelter, NBWS is a non-profit, community-funded charitable organisation providing crisis accommodation, support, safety and services for homeless women across Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
