We are very proud to learn that our efforts have been acknowledged by Engineers Australia, and will keep working to reshape the culture and infrastructure of our engineering community.

Most Encouraging Student or Non-For -Profit Group in Gender Diversity 2020 Highly Commended

Women in Engineering and IT at University of Technology Sydney

Over the last 3 years, our Women in Engineering and IT team have focused on impact-led initiatives with embedded evaluation, informed by research and emerging best practices. This award means a lot to us because it recognises the work and achievements of not only our team but also our community.

Without our community of staff, students and industry partners and volunteers, we would not have been able to achieve so much and reach from primary school students, teachers and families, across to high school, into university studies, and preparing for engineering careers through a mentoring program with industry professionals.

Thank you for this recognition and inspiration to keep creating positive impact and change!
