Carlton Football Club Director – 11 months.

Reflecting Carlton’s significant investment in women’s football, Patty Kinnersly made history by becoming the Blues’ first designated Board member to oversee the AFLW/VFLW programs. Her appointment reflected the Club’s continued commitment to good governance and to building a skills-based Board aligned to the needs of the Club.

Kinnersly is the Chief Executive Officer of Our Watch – a national organisation driving change in cultures, attitudes and behaviours against domestic violence. With her insight and guidance, Kinnersly enhances the work of the Club’s flagship community program in Carlton Respects, as well as community and diversity programs more broadly.

Alongside an extensive corporate career, Kinnersly has 14 years of playing experience in the VWFL for the Ballarat Lions, Fairfield Falcons and Parkside Magpies, playing in five premierships and representing Victoria on 10 occasions, twice as captain.

Other responsibilities:
Member of Carlton Football Club Infrastructure Sub-Committee, Chair Community and Diversity Sub-Committee and Football Performance Sub-Committee (AFLW).
