#WeAreWomenInDefence

Equality of opportunity in defence and security will not happen by chance. It will require a concerted effort across the enterprise, changing the overall dynamics, making defence a better place where people can work, learn and thrive.

We believe in making defence a better place where people can work, learn and thrive. Please join us on our journey.
ANGELA OWEN

"I’m an ex-Army officer and founder of Women in Defence UK. I founded the group in 2011 as I realised that despite the thousands of women working in defence, we seemed to be too thinly spread.

 

All too often I was one of two or three women at defence conferences or gatherings. At the start, I thought we might get about 40 or 50 members; we now have around 4000 and have interviewed senior defence leaders such as the Chief of the General Staff, the First Sea Lord, the Chief of the Air Staff and the Commandant General of the Royal Marines.

 

Our mentoring programme brings together talent from the defence sector, and in the first five years, our Women in Defence UK Awards have attracted nearly 2000 entries from across the Armed Forces, MOD Civil Service, defence industry and the defence 3rd sector."
