 In a significant stride towards gender inclusivity, the Australian High Commission in Papua New Guinea (PNG) is steadfast in its commitment to bolstering women's participation in traditionally male-dominated industries.

Commending the recent achievements, the High Commission applauds the dedication and perseverance of eight women who successfully completed a rigorous one-month basic welding training program. These women are now poised to advance onto a Certificate II in Engineering Pathways, positioning themselves to make substantial contributions to PNG's workforce.

Expressing pride in this collaborative effort, the Australian High Commission underscores its commitment to supporting PNG in addressing workforce gaps, particularly in sectors historically dominated by men. By nurturing the talents and resilience of PNG women, Australia aims to foster a more inclusive and diverse workforce, thereby driving sustainable growth and prosperity.

Through initiatives like these, the Australian High Commission reaffirms its unwavering dedication to promoting gender equality and empowering women to thrive in all facets of the workforce. As these women forge ahead in their chosen fields, their success stories serve as inspiring testaments to the transformative impact of targeted vocational training and inclusive policies.
