Episode Description

Chloe Dalton decided to take action on gender inequality by using her platform as a triple-code elite athlete. She did that by creating The Female Athlete Project (in her Mum and Dads garage) to shine a light on the positive achievements of women athletes. TFAP has a podcast, social media channels, merch and much more with a lofty goal: to increase the number of people following women's sport.

I loved this conversation because Chloe provides practical advice for any of us who want to positively impact women in sport, as well as a HUGE call to action for sporting administrators around Australia.

About Chloe
