    • The Winnovation Awards provide a much needed glimpse into the unique talent and contributions of women working in S.T.E.A.M industries in South Australia. Receiving the award for the Science and Health category has proved to be a terrific springboard for raising awareness of the exciting and rapidly growing field of cell therapies and its potential for changing healthcare outcomes for the future.

    • This award has contributed in various ways to recognition of Newsmaker's position in the digital media landscape in Australia. But more than that, it lets women know that IT is not just an exciting career path, it is one of the best routes to financial independence.

    • Winning the Future Innovators category turbo charged STEM SISTA being recognised overseas and we've now been invited to speak about our program in Warsaw! Not only did the award create greater visibility of STEM SISTA, but it also inspired our program directors to continue to push the boundaries of traditional professional development for girls.
