Tasmanian women share inspiring career stories

To encourage more women to seek careers in traditionally male-dominated roles within Tasmania’s public service, the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPIWE) has launched a campaign to encourage young women to join the Agency.

See it. Dream it. Do it. is a project that aims to increase the visibility of women working in DPIPWE’s diverse operational and field based roles.

The campaign features five women discussing their careers as a ranger, wildlife officer, biosecurity inspector, research microbiologist and surveyor. The videos will be shown across social media, online and throughout Tasmanian schools.

The Tasmanian Government is committed to growing the number of women involved in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine in the State, and programs like See it. Dream it. Do it. illustrates the many opportunities for young women in traditionally male-dominated field.

The videos may be viewed on DPIPWE's youtube channel.
