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 celebrates and recognises the achievements of individuals, teams and organisations 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 inspire, challenge and develop, to improve defence for everyone who works across it and defence output for all.
