The Australian Defence Force (ADF) has hosted a women’s information event designed to to educate women about the roles available to them within the ADF.
Women make up 15.4 per cent of the total permanent workforce within the ADF. The session dismissed suggestions the ADF is only for men, and encouraged women to enlist. The event focused on the roles in the forces, the benefits of a career within the ADF and the best ways to pursue a career within the Australian military.
The event is one of the many ADF initiatives to encourage more women to enlist, and focused women from a diverse range of religious and ethnic backgrounds.
