Action plan gives women’s aviation initiative new wings

The Australian Government’s Strategic Action Plan for the Women in the Aviation Industry Initiative was launched today.

Informed by stakeholder consultation, it outlines priority areas for the next phase of the $8 million Initiative and builds upon efforts by industry to create an environment where women increasingly choose a career in aviation and are welcomed into an inclusive and supportive industry.

The Initiative has invested $3.1 million to date in activities that increase the visibility and awareness of the sector among girls and women.

Over the next financial year, a further $1.3 million will be available to fund activities relating to leadership and culture, visibility and awareness, collaboration and continuous improvement as outlined in the plan.

An Approach to Market will be released shortly to seek proposals for projects to help deliver on the Action Plan.
