2023 Women in Technology Queensland Awards

The annual Women in Technology (WiT) Awards is Queensland’s longest-running Industry Awards which recognises and celebrates the extensive impact that passionate women from across STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) have on the world.

The WiT Awards recognises the incredible talents, outstanding achievements and every-day contributions made by change-making Queensland women in STEM who are creating or positively shaping technologically driven innovations, solutions, services, research advancements, educational or community initiatives across various industries to:

  • benefit Queenslanders;
  • enhance our communities;
  • strengthen local businesses and industries;
  • create a healthier, more sustainable Queensland OR
  • protect our natural world.

Introducing our 2023 Finalists

These passionate, driven women are impacting change for the benefit of Queenslanders in a wide range of areas from creating local innovations hubs and community networks to empower more change-makers to transform their ideas into real-world ventures; to leveraging digital solutions to support millions of Aussies enhance their brain health as well as synergising traditional knowledge with cutting edge technologies to protect our oceans and the natural world – AND SO MUCH MORE!

Winners in each of the 10 Award categories will be announced at the 2023 WiT Awards Gala Dinner celebrations in Brisbane on Friday 22 September 2023. 

In 2023, we re-imagined the future of the WiT Awards to recognise the numerous ways in which passionate, change-making women in STEM disciplines are supported to challenge the status quo to advocate and empower women or girls in STEM and shape technologically driven innovations or transformative ideas that enhance the wellbeing of Queensland people, communities, industries and the natural world.

This year our Awards categories were open to female individuals as well as female-led or majority female teams, projects, start-ups or businesses driving positive change in their field of STEM for the benefit of Queenslanders.

The criteria of each Award category was also refreshed to align with the principles behind our 5 core values below.

But this was more than just an awards night. It was a celebration of what it means to be human.
