I’m thrilled to have been named as a state finalist in the 2020 Telstra Business Women’s Awards for my work leading the development of IC Global at CSIRO.

None of what we’re building would be possible without our amazing Foundation Partners: Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources, The Conversation, IP Australia - Official, Clarivate Analytics and ARC. Together we’re on a mission to drive innovation by better connecting industry challenges with relevant research expertise. To achieve this, we’ve built a directory of over 70,000 experts from over 220 research organisations, compiled a directory of over 250 innovation challenges, and plotted innovation data on the NationalMap. I'm very proud that our expert directory also includes a filter to easily find highly qualified women from all fields of research.

With over 22,000 nominations received for the 2020 Awards, I’m honoured to be joining the Awards Alumni and excited to connect with all the other incredible finalists.

Recently I had the opportunity to share with Cosmos Magazine the work my team at CSIRO's are doing to help make highly qualified women easily discoverable for a range of professional opportunities (so no one can use the old excuse that a suitable woman couldn't be found!). Our FindHer filter on Expert Connect ( automatically profiles over 5000 women from all fields of research (so there's no burden on women to create or maintain this info). We certainly aren't alone in this space, with 500 Women Scientists and Women in STEMM Australia also doing vital work to champion women. Next time you're looking for expertise (whether it be for a speaking engagement, board appointment, media commentary, collaborator etc) the FindHer filter can help you find and connect with top talent that may not otherwise have been on your radar.
As always, we are very open to ideas and suggestions about how to enhance the work we’re doing. We encourage any potential collaborators to get in touch, including those with:
- An interest in displaying researcher profiles on their own website
- Data to contribute or suggestions on additional functionality
- An interest in becoming an IC Global Ambassador to help get the word out
