Workforce
 
We are developing and supporting our people to be at the heart of our innovation. Sustainable Air Force innovation requires an intelligent and skilled community who demonstrate agility, creativity and innovation at every level in our workforce – and extended community.
 
This is a shared goal as set out in the Defence Science and Technology Strategy which aims to develop a highly skilled and collaborative workforce, recognising diversity in partnerships and building shared culture.
 
We also have a strong interest in increasing the STEM pipeline for a strong Australian future talent pool and continue to collaborate with industry and academia on several initiatives to inspire and excite future generations about opportunities in STEM.
