Women in the Aviation Industry

The Australian Government's Women in the Aviation Industry Initiative supports Government and industry working together to encourage more women to pursue careers in the aviation sector.

This complements and supports the work already being undertaken by the aviation industry to encourage women to consider aviation as a career option.

The Australian Government has provided an additional $4 million over the next four years to continue to support a range of activities including conferences, workshops and careers events to deliver grassroots programs and significantly boost outreach to female school and university students, as well as those considering transitioning into an aviation career.

Attracting and training an increasing number of female aviation professionals will be key to assisting the aviation industry to meet future demands for skilled workers.
