WiTWA '20 in 20' Gala Awards Event at the Crown

On Saturday 3 November 2018, Women in Technology WA will present an Awards night 20 years in the making and we invite you to be a part of it!

2018 marks 20 years since WiTWA was founded. We are celebrating this historic moment by recognising 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.

About the Event

Join us for a very special cocktail event with plenty of food, drinks and entertainment throughout the evening. Ticket prices are all inclusive and limited so please don't miss out this will surely be a night to remember! Both men and women are welcome to attend.
