Q&A & Writing Workshop for Award Submissions

July 26, 2020 @

Sunday 26 July at 3-4pm.

Did someone tap you on the shoulder to tell you that you need to submit your application for the WiTWA Tech [+] 20 Award? Or any award for that matter? Are you struggling even to get started?

We hear you! Loud and clear.

Writing your own submission can be challenging. So to help you craft an amazing award application, we are running a Q&A and writing workshop for award submissions.

In this workshop, we will provide a few example responses, share a template that you can fill in, AND give you time and a safe space to write with our support. And best of all, we have a panel of past nominees, story tellers, and social media experts to answer questions while you are at it.

The workshop will be facilitated by our very own Pia Turcinov, and you will have the opportunity to have your questions answered by :

  • Sarah Mitchell – Content Marketing expert, Founder at Typeset and Global Copywriting & ‘award submission whisperer’ who will share her tips on how to write a winning submission
  • Jo Saunders – LinkedIn & Brand Strategist & Founder of Wildfire Marketing who will share her tips on the importance of backing yourself on social media
  • Heidi Pass – WiTWA Committee, Earth Scientist, Passionate @ Gender Intelligence & past Tech [+] Award nominee
  • Michelle Radley – WiTWA Conference Committee Lead, Technology Integrator & Leader @ Rio Tinto & past Tech [+] Award winner
  • Gry Stene – WiTWA Comms Committee, STEAM & Diversity Advocate, Founder STEAM Engine Global & past Tech [+] Award winner

This will be a fairly informal workshop where we hope you will have a bit of fun while learning how to shine. BYO snacks and drinks as we are staying virtual so we can reach as many as possible.
