The CCP Women's Network encourages measures such as gender-sensitized recruitment criteria, flexible working hours, a support network between women law enforcement and customs officers, and a training module on gender as a mandatory part of the core training. The Women's Network Newsletter is launched to keep PCU officers, donors, private sector partners, civil society, and other relevant stakeholders regularly updated on issues and recent developments regarding gender equality and cross-cutting issues in border management and law enforcement. In July 2020, the WN launched a flagship programme to advance gender equality: the CCP Women’s Professional Development Programme (WPDP). The WPDP set out to empower emerging CCP women leaders from different regions through an immersive training experience focused on building their leadership capabilities, technical skills, and networks. Implemented jointly with the Australian Border Force (ABF) and RMIT University, the WPDP was designed to act as a catalyst for progressing women’s leadership in law enforcement. This initiative was the 2022 winner of the United Nations Office at Vienna/UNODC Gender Award for outstanding efforts in implementing the UNOV/UNODC strategy for Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment.
