DFAT Women lead in Southeast Asia

Launched in 2015, DFAT’s Women in Leadership Strategy tackles barriers to women’s career progression in the department, and seeks to enable all staff to reach their full potential. The Strategy applies to all staff, both Australian and locally engaged at one of our many overseas posts, and aims to ensure that all staff feel included, valued and inspired to do their best.

Celebrating women in cyber

Today, on International Women’s Day 2017, our Ambassador for Cyber Affairs has released a video celebrating women in cyber. The compilation showcases some of the extraordinary work being done by women in cyber worldwide. We hope this video inspires more women and men to take up one of the many diverse, challenging and rewarding careers in the important field of cyber.

Let’s all be Bold for Change

Today is International Women’s Day. This year’s theme, Be Bold for Change, calls on all of us to step up to help create a world that is more inclusive and equal. The aim is for a world that is more peaceful and sustainable, where the contribution of women is recognised, valued and respected. Australia is committed to this endeavour.
