ARN is proud to announce finalists of the Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA) in 2022, underpinned by record-breaking representation as female accomplishment and achievement hits new heights in Australia.

Mirroring the entire local ecosystem, 240 finalists (220 individuals and 20 companies) make the shortlist from a pool of over 120 organisations and more than 325 nominations, spanning partner, telco, vendor and distributor businesses.

Female leaders are located across the entire country from multiple states and territories, including New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and the Australian Capital Territory.

In 2022, WIICTA will house the largest celebration of female excellence within the technology channel across Australia — surpassing a record-breaking finalists haul in 2021 by more than 15 per cent.

All career stages are in the spotlight from graduate-level entrants to well-established CEOs, in addition to inspiring entrepreneurs, creative thinkers and technical experts, as well as talent rising through the ranks and consistent high-performing individuals. This is also supported by both individual and company champions of D&I initiatives.

Collectively, WIICTA in 2022 stands tall as the leading forum for setting the industry benchmark for female achievement across Australia.

“This is a stunning display of emerging and established female talent in Australia,” said Cherry Yumul, vice president of Channel at Foundry. “Once again the bar has been raised by countless examples of inspirational women leading the way in technology — we are proud and privileged to be celebrating each and every one of them.”

In 2022, WIICTA will honour the channel across eight categories, spanning Innovation, Technical, Entrepreneur, Graduate, Rising Star, Shining Star, Achievement and D&I Champion (Company and Individual) awards.

“Our goal is simple, to ensure as many outstanding women are endorsed through this unique awards program in Australia,” Yumul added. “To have a record-breaking number of finalists means that we can once again provide a platform to connect as many inspiring females as possible in our inclusive and expansive community.”

The winners will now be selected by an executive panel of more than 150 industry judges, acknowledging creativity, innovation and excellence.
