Broderick Review calls
for public submissions
PUBLIC submissions for Phase 1 of the
reviews into Defence culture chaired
by Sex Discrimination Commissioner
Elizabeth Broderick are being called
for during a two-week period from
June 27-July 8.
The first phase deals with the treat-
ment of women at ADFA and includes
interviews by the review panel with
former students, families of cadets and
sponsor families at the academy.
Additionally, the review team is now
calling for written submissions from the
public, ADFA personnel, cadets past and
present and other interested persons.
During Phase 1, the review team is
also examining the experience of military
colleges internationally, particularly in
Canada and the Netherlands.
The panel is due to report on Phase 1

a first-class defence force.

having a world-class educational facility
like ADFA to build the leadership capa-
bility of the ADF," Ms Broderick said.

of women will be a guiding principle,
which will allow the ADF to deliver on

efforts to improve gender equality, to
ensure women's safety, to prevent sexual
harassment, sexual abuse and sex dis-
crimination within ADFA and the ADF.
"The review presents an excellent
opportunity to identify what is working
well and should be expanded, where the
