Thank you to all who celebrated with us. On Saturday 3 November, the fabulous WiTWA community celebrated 20 years since founding by awarding female STEM and Innovation role models. We made two exciting announcements on the night:

  • The launch of our Role Models page, listing all 87 amazing nominees for the ‘20 in 20’ Awards. If you’re looking for real-life examples of inspiring STEM and Innovation leaders in WA, you’ll find them here. So next time you hear ‘We couldn’t find a woman for the job/panel/board/committee/keynote’, please share the link! We are now accepting applications for Diversity Champion companies that would like to show their support and be included on the page. We’ll be adding more role models over the coming months.

  • The inaugural WiTWA Summit will be taking place in Perth in November 2019. It’s a one-day event where we'll bring together extraordinary women - and men! We are women focused, yet gender inclusive) - in those fields. We're already on the lookout for speakers - nationally and internationally - who will challenge, inspire and provoke us to action. And yes, we're looking for speakers amongst our extraordinary role models. We'll be including high school and university students in our audience. Please contact us for further information if you would like to be part of this exciting initiative for 2019.
