WIC is a Canberra based not-for-profit organisation bringing people together to champion women in Information and Communication.  Our vision is to be the premier organisation for women in Information and Communication in Canberra. As part of this vision, WIC has set up the WIC Defying Gravity Award to recognise emerging talent in ICT.  The award will be presented at the WIC Dinner on the 7th of November, 2019 at the Hotel Realm in Barton.

The WIC Defying Gravity award seeks to recognise the impressive contribution of a women, early in her ICT career, who is demonstrating significant talent and commitment to her career in ICT. 

One of the key issues for women considering careers in ICT is that ‘you can’t be what you can’t see’.  Women need to see and hear from role models at all stages of ICT careers and it is important that we showcase and celebrate women with emerging talent in ICT.  The WIC Defying Gravity award will highlight someone who is showing talent early in her ICT career whether a young woman whose first job has been ICT or a woman who has transitioned to ICT from another field.  The WIC Defying Gravity award winner will be someone to inspire other women to see themselves having a successful career in ICT. 

Nominations are sought for women based in the Canberra region, whose ICT career is less than 8 years, and who have

  1. Have a demonstrated a significant record of achievement, or aptitude for ICT; and

  2. Made a significant contribution to gender diversity in the ICT industry; and /or

  3. Acted as a role model or mentor for women in the ICT industry;
