Since 2002, weโ€™ve partnered with the University of Technology Sydney on our Women in Engineering & Information Technology (WEIT) Award. This award encourages women studying in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics to pursue their passion. Plus, it addresses the low rate of female participation in these fields.

With this very special 20th anniversary, our 2022 finalists are: Jacqueline CowderyJasmine PyeEmaan GoharKashish AgarwalRubab Rahman and ๐ŸŽปCaitlin Murphy.
