We are committed to promoting the value of women across the defence enterprise.

Our story

Since 2011, we have made a concentrated effort to make defence a better place for women. Starting as a LinkedIn group, we have grown into a community of men and women that celebrate and recognise the achievements of the men, women and teams working in the defence of our nation.

Our vision


We are passionate about promoting the value of women in defence. And we know that gender balance in security and defence won't happen by chance. That's why we aim to develop, challenge, demonstrate and inspire, to improve defence for everyone who works across it and defence output for all. 

Get involved


Shortlisters, Finalists and Winners have now been announced for the Women in Defence UK Awards 2019. We'll be opening our 2020 Awards Nominations in February 2020. In the meantime, look out for our exciting events, including RADA Masterclasses and Briefing and Networking Evenings.
