REGIONAL women are being encouraged to enter the prestigious Women in Technology (WiT) annual awards with nominations open from now until 15 July 2015.

WiT aims to support, develop, recognise and promote achievements of women in ICT and Life Sciences via relevant events, mentoring, board readiness, step up, outreach, programs, awards and networks.
