TRANSGENDER footballers hoping to play AFL Women's next season remain in limbo, with the League still working through a gender diversity policy. 

A meeting at AFL House on Wednesday reviewed the draft policy for the elite women's competition.

But a final decision appears some way off still.

"The AFL conducted a consultative discussion today with invited community representatives to be briefed on and discuss the draft AFL Gender Diversity Policy," the statement said. 

"The discussion was productive, and provided valuable feedback to the AFL draft policy.

"The AFL thanks the community representatives for their generosity in engaging with our draft policy and for sharing their perspectives.

"The AFL acknowledges that there is still a long way to go to develop a national response to ensuring safe and inclusive sporting clubs, as well as a policy to guide elite sport to be more inclusive." 

Hannah Mouncey has become the high-profile public face of the transgender debate and was blocked from last year's NAB AFLW Draft.

A subcommittee was formed to rule on Mouncey's eligibility and its decision was based on analysis of transgender strength, stamina and physique, as well as the AFLW being in its infancy. reported the subcommittee believed Mouncey would have had an unreasonable physical advantage over her opponents. 

However, she was allowed to play in the state women's league competition. 

The next AFLW draft will be held in October.
