Hastings Deering to lift Brisbane Lions AFLW team in 2019
Hastings Deering will lift the Brisbane Lions in their third AFLW season after the two organisations recently announced their partnership.
In return for their support of the team, Hastings Deering will have a brand presence at all games. Both organisations will also collaborate around diversity and inclusion and continue developing pathways to increase female participation in our respective fields and markets.
To celebrate the announcement Lions vice-captain Kate Lutkins was on hand, with Vincent Cosgrove, Hastings Deering General Manger People and Lions Women’s CEO Breeanna Brock at the team’s training ground, Leyshon Park.
Lutkins is familiar with operating heavy machinery, as she often drives big trucks in her role as a member of the Australian Defence Force.
Brock said the team was thrilled to welcome Hastings Deering into the Lions AFLW family.
“Hastings Deering is such a reputable company and we are so excited to have them come with us on our journey in 2019,” she said.
“Their support can help us lift to new heights.”
Cosgrove said that this partnership was important for Hastings Deering as it is part of their ‘Together as One’ program complimenting the company’s commitment to developing pathways to build and increase female participation in their respective markets.
“This competition provides us the perfect opportunity to reinforce our commitment to supporting women from all walks of life achieve their full potential,” Cosgrove said.
“The Brisbane Lions Women’s team are the most successful QLD women’s sporting team in the past two years and we are delighted to be able to partner with them,” he said.
