Col. Sara V. Simmons, U.S. Army Africa G1 director, provides guidance to work group leaders to ensure their presentation captures key issues and challenges Botswana Defense Force leadership will face when integrating enlisted women into the force during a Women's Integration working group April 5 through 12. The working groups consisted of 35 male and female BDF soldiers discussing ways to help integrate females in the BDF. Topics included housing, current training infrastructure, instructors, recruiting, retention and women's health issues. The overall objectives of the working groups were to identify some of the challenges and opportunities and to mitigate any issues that may occur with integration.
