Consultation with Women Veterans 

The Women Veterans Policy Forum provides a platform for women veterans to raise issues directly with the Australian Government and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA), and to create new channels of communication between DVA and the veteran community. The Forum is attended by women veterans and other representatives from the veteran community. 

The inaugural Woman Veteran Policy Forum (the Forum) was held in 2016. Subsequent Forums were conducted on 10 October 2017, 11-12 September 2018, 14-15 August 2019, 15-16 June 2022, and 14-15 June 2023. Virtual engagements continued through 2020 and 2021 to remain connected to the community and gather feedback during the COVID-19 pandemic period.

The Forum is one way government and DVA are listening to woman veterans and using their feedback to co-design future DVA policy and service delivery options.

Registrations for the upcoming Forum are currently closed.
