2020 WOMEN IN TECHNOLOGY AWARDS
Forty-four outstanding women from across Queensland have been announced as finalists in the 2020 annual Women in Technology (WiT) Awards following a record 440 nominations.
For the first time, the prestigious WiT Awards have three new categories, including one specifically focused on celebrating the achievements of women living and working in Queensland’s regional, rural and remote locations.
Women in Technology (WiT) President Dr Claudia Giurgiuman said although 2020 had been a challenging year, ‘the show must go on’.
“This year has been a year of change for everyone, including WiT, so we decided to create an online celebration to champion the State’s remarkable women in science and technology,” she said.
“Our virtual 2020 WiT Awards on 9 October are set to be bigger and better than ever with the ABC’s celebrity scientist Joel Gilmore as the event’s MC, alongside our distinguished keynote Australia’s Chief Defence Scientist Professor, Tanya Monro.
"With the devastating economic impact of COVID-19, harnessing our female talent and skill has never been more crucial, so this year, more than ever, the awards show must go on.
"Many women are doing amazing work and these awards are about giving them the recognition they deserve, building support for their work, and inspiring the next generation of leaders by showing what is possible."
Although the 2020 WiT Awards presentation is online this year, attendees are encouraged to dress to excess or extreme comfort as the event is brought live to their living rooms. Attendees will still have the same opportunity to network, mingle, and support the work done by these incredible finalists through the online event platform.
