November 20, 2015 Katrina Waldron

Ogilvy PR Australia, CEO, Kieran Moore, was proud to join our client, Toshiba at the annual ARN Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA) for 2015.

The finalists for the fourth annual Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA) were selected in seven hotly-contested categories: Achievement, Rising Star, Shining Star, Entrepreneur, Innovation, Technical, and Community.

According to Mariana Thomas who was a judge this year,: “There was a 143 per cent increase in applicants from last year’s awards (199 nominations compared to 82 in 2014).  And, the calibre was extraordinary,” she said.

The awards recognise the very best in the channel, celebrating the achievements of a talented crop of female front runners who have made it through to become influential figures in Australia’s ICT industry. The awards also recognise the ‘rising stars’ in the industry, women who are quickly growing in importance in the ICT industry.
