Angie Greene is the Founder of Stand Up Events – a Not For Profit incorporated Association dedicated to challenging homophobia in Sport and beyond.
Having grown up in a professional sporting family which includes Brother Steven, an ex AFL/VFL player, Father Russell is a member of the Hawthorn Hall of Fame and her grandfather, Frank Sedgman, won 22 Tennis Grand Slams. Angie has another brother who is gay and has seen first-hand, the impact that certain cultures have on those who do not feel included.
Stand Up Events has created customised preventative workshops that will be implemented into Junior Sporting Codes.
The intention of these workshops is to eliminate homophobic language and behaviour in the sporting culture and to create an environment where everyone feels embraced, included and equal.
