Podcast #25: Luke Ablett

Luke Ablett is a former AFL player who played 133 games with the Sydney Swans including the drought-breaking 2005 Premiership. But despite a stellar career and a famous football surname, footy was never going to be everything for him: the bigger goals are off the field.

Since retiring from the game, Luke has completed a Bachelor of Arts at RMIT.  He has spent a year volunteering in Vanuatu, working with young men in an attempt to tackle that country’s extraordinarily high rates of gendered violence.

Luke is passionate about promoting gender equity and preventing men’s violence, and has extensive experience delivering education and capacity building programs on these topics to a range of different groups.
