Meet Geelong Cats AFL/AFLW stars Tom Atkins and Meg McDonald on campus

We’re excited to welcome Cats AFLW captain Meg McDonald and 2022 AFL premiership player and Cats’ Pride Ambassador Tom Atkins to our Waurn Ponds Campus for a very special event.

Meg and Tom will chat about the 2024 season and the meteoric growth of the AFLW, plus tackle some big issues like positive culture, mental health, inclusion and leadership.

You’ll hear stories from the players’ careers, learn about the team culture at the Cats and have the chance to ask questions in this interactive forum.

There’s also a free dinner and Geelong Cats merch up for grabs!

When: Wednesday 24 April, 5–7pm
Where: Building FY (Town Hall), Deakin Residential Services, Waurn Ponds Campus, 75 Pigdons Road
