Our Powered By Partners

Thank you to all our 2022 Powered By Partners

We are grateful for the generous support received from our major partners Optus and the Queensland Government as well as CSIRO, QUT, Data#3, Auto & General and RSL Queensland who have come on board as our Powered By Partners in 2022.

Their generous financial support means WiT can continue to:

  • advocate for, connect and provide a supportive community environment for WiT members and the wider STEM community;
  • deliver programs, events (including our flagship WiT Awards) and initiatives that are critical to our organisation’s vision;
  • bring to life our purpose of unlocking the potential of women in technology and across the wide world of STEM in meaningful and exciting ways.

Collectively, we can contribute and work towards creating a fairer and more equitable society where all Australians have the opportunity to participate in and benefit from Australia’s growing digital economy and thriving STEM industries.

Because together, we are stronger.
