Women in Technology WA’s Tech [+] Awards

Perth based WiTWA Women in Tech [+] Western Australia (WiTWA) is an organisation on a mission.

Providing support via a robust network of women working in the male dominated tech world, WiTWA has been a driving force in expanding the participation of Western Australian women in tech careers for 23 years.  In 2010, the initiative added the [+] to their logo, expanding the drive for diversity beyond the tech sectors.

WiTWA’s annual awards celebrate women championing diversity and equality in their fields.

This year, two women from the oil and gas industry are leading the charge for inclusion in tech.

Woodside Intelligent Systems Product Manager, Emma Eltringham, and Woodside Graduate Petroleum Engineer, Moe San Thu, are both nominated in the Tech [+] 20 and People’s Choice categories.

Award winners will be announced on the 5th of November at Crown Towers at the fourth annual WiTWA Awards Ceremony.

At Brighter we are firm believers in the mantra ‘You can’t be what you can’t see’ or WiTWAs riff; ‘If you can see her, you can be her’. By making women’s vital role in the technology space more visible to new generations, WiTWA build careers with inclusivity that can nurture and cultivate talent, regardless of gender, to create a better future.

Join us in wishing Emma and Moe good luck for November 5, and in amplifying initiatives like WiTWA that create inclusive spaces across our industry.
