Gender Balance Overview

The Gender Balance Overview of Australasian Firefighters 2015 is a WAFA initiative to establish the current state of play for all Fire Agencies within Australasia. As a base we hope it will encourage Agencies to set statistical objectives for gender balance and, in turn, improve all diversity reporting.

The overview was compiled by one of the WAFA Board members. We will use it to measure progress going forward and hopefully build comprehensive and accurate data for our Recruitment and Retention strategies.

This overview includes both volunteer and career firefighters. Data was obtained from Agency Annual Reports and various documents tabled at AFAC.
