See It. Dream It. Do It.
What’s your dream job? DPIPWE supports and encourages women in operational and field-based roles, where females have traditionally been underrepresented.
DPIPWE’s See It. Dream It. Do It. Program engages with our future workforce by:
- Facilitating high-impact careers workshops in regional high schools around Tasmania, where female students can meet and learn from role models within the Department;
- Offering work exposure excursions for female students to meet our operational and field-based staff at their worksites to better understand what their jobs involve;
- Hosting a fun and interactive children’s display at Agfest.
