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.

Over the next three years, a range of conferences, workshops and careers events will be held and the Australian Government will partner with industry to deliver grassroots programs and significantly boost outreach to female school and university students as well as those considering transitioning into an aviation career.

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

The initiative will also build on the recent Australian Government-led roundtable, which explored ways to promote greater aviation sector diversity and enhanced equality, by addressing the gender gap in the aviation workforce.
