Pearce’s dedication to women’s football was rewarded in the early stages of 2017, when she became the first female member of the AFL Players' Association Board. In May 2013, Pearce was the Demon's first selection in football’s first ever national women’s draft, used in conjunction with an exhibition match between Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs. Following the conclusion of the inaugural AFLW competition, the Darebin Falcons midfielder was elected as the league’s Best Captain at the AFL Players' Association's AFLW MVP Awards by her peers, whilst serving as Melbourne’s first ever captain. Her consistent performances earned her selection in the 2017 All-Australian team, while having the honour of captaining the side bestowed upon her.
