Caitlin Wilson delivers closing remarks at the BCfW graduation ceremony.

The PNG–Australia Partnership will continue to support development opportunities for women to step into leadership.

Precinct scholarships will be awarded to 10 public servants to undertake the BCfW Certificate IV in Leadership and Management.

Deputy Australian High Commissioner Caitlin Wilson made the announcement at the BCfW graduation ceremony in August.

She said the empowerment of women is a top priority for the PNG-Australia Partnership.

“Gender equality promotes prosperity, stability and security in our region,” Ms Wilson said.

“For these reasons we must support the empowerment of women, and especially women in leadership.

“Everyone deserves the opportunity to fulfil their potential as individuals, and as valued members of families, communities, organisations and countries.”
