Defence Connect Podcast Network

Mar 5, 2020

In the lead up to International Women’s Day this Sunday, 8 March, international consultant and published author Jennifer Wittwer discusses female empowerment in a traditionally male-dominated defence industry.

Wittwer joins host Phil Tarrant on this episode of Defence Connect to share her untraditional 39-year career trajectory in the defence realm, her perception of how attitudes towards women in the military have changed, and how Australia is faring in comparison with other countries in terms of gender parity in the Defence Force.

Wittwer delves into how a life-altering experience sparked her desire to create change for women in the defence space, the programs and strategies that have addressed this issue in the Navy over the last 10 years, and what active steps the ADF can take to promote more meaningful female participation across all areas of the industry.
