Connecting past and present Women of Defence with resources,
support & information to live an empowered & fulfilling life.
INTRODUCING WOMENS VETERANS NETWORK AUSTRALIA (WVNA)
As a result of the RSL-funded Women Veterans Symposium held in Brisbane in July 2015, the WVNA – Women Veterans Network Australia was initially established as a community Facebook page. This step reflected the desire expressed by women at the symposium to connect with other women veterans and share relevant information.
WVNA is inclusive of all ranks who served in the Navy, Army or Air Force who have served either in a full time or Reserve capacity, regardless of whether they have been deployed or not.
We encourage people to please LIKE & SHARE the WVNA – Women Veterans Network Australia page https://www.facebook.com/womensveteransassn as a resource for general information and posts of interest to women veterans.
WVNA has also established a network of Closed Facebook groups as an efficient means for women veterans to join and make connections via social media in various regions around Australia. All women veterans are welcome to join and connect with others who live in the area to support each other.
Currently WVN groups have been activated in the following locations:
Gold Coast and Northern Rivers
Newcastle – Hunter Valley
South Coast NSW
Wide Bay – Burnett
To find the relevant group on Facebook; enter “Women Veterans Network” followed by the “Region” eg Women Veterans Network Brisbane.
More recently the WOMEN VETERANS NETWORK AUSTRALIA FORUM Closed Facebook group was created to share the conversation among women veterans nationally.
Anyone on Facebook can find a Closed group and see who’s in it. Only members can see posts. Please encourage women veterans known to your organisation to FOLLOW our page and JOIN a group to share information and connect with others. We are more than happy to discuss requests to create new groups if an area is not yet represented.
