Gender Equality


In the Australian Government development policy, one of the investment priorities is to give an increasing commitment to empower women and recognises the benefits that flow to whole communities from women’s participation. Empowering women to participate in the economy, leadership and education is integral for the Australian Government, as illustrated in the Promoting opportunities for all – Gender equality and women’s empowerment strategy. Australia Awards PNG has a significant focus on gender equality throughout the whole scholarship cycle and ensures that women benefit from opportunities provided by the program.
