Federal funding available to support women and girls in aviation

The department is calling on experienced suppliers to put in their bids for activities that will make a real difference for women already in the industry, those considering a career in our skies, as well as younger generations not yet fully aware of the possibilities.

To be delivered under the successful Women in the Aviation Industry initiative, this funding will help support a strong and thriving aviation industry that attracts, trains and retrains women in an inclusive and respectful environment.

Projects can range from awareness campaigns to upskilling programs and will focus on three priorities:

  • Tap into the power of leaders to drive change and realise a culture of inclusion that promotes and supports diversity within the aviation industry
  • Increase visibility and awareness of the aviation industry and the unique and diverse career opportunities it offers women
  • Strengthen networks and collaboration across the aviation industry to drive innovation, share learning and optimise impact by aligning efforts

Projects can be run through to June 2026 and will deliver on six action areas under these priorities, outlined in the open tender materials.

This will build on the $1.3 million in activities announced under the initiative last month, and forms part of the Women in the Aviation Industry Initiative Strategic Action Plan.

The department encourages all interested suppliers to review the material now available on AusTender and put in their bids by the 8 May 2024 deadline.
