20 in 20 Awards celebrate 20th Anniversary
Nominate & join us for our '20 in 20' Awards
Did you know that 2018 marks 20 years since WiTWA was founded? We hope you’ll agree that’s worth celebrating.
We are marking this historic moment with an Awards night 20 years in the making to recognise those who have embodied our mission: our champions for diversity and equality for women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Innovation in Western Australia.
Whether that’s by breaking new ground in their career, or by mentoring women and encouraging them to pursue their non-traditional work, or by speaking out and acting against discrimination, we want to formally recognise the impact these unsung heroes have had and thank them for their contribution.
The event will be cocktail style with approximately 200 people attending, an
approach where the award giving need not take hours to complete. This will be a fun, celebratory night, recognising outstanding women and our 20 year anniversary. We hope you will be among them! Public Voting is NOW OPEN!
