ITS Australia has created a new award to recognise outstanding female contributions to the country's ITS industry.

The inaugural Woman of the Year Award will be added to the seven existing award categories presented at the 15th ITS Australia Awards, to be held in Perth in February 2025. 

“The introduction of this award complements the prestigious Max Lay Lifetime Achievement Award and reflects that women have historically, and continue to be, underrepresented in the ITS industry, meaning it will take some time before we can fully celebrate diversity through the Max Lay Lifetime Achievement Award,” says ITS Australia CEO Susan Harris. 

“In establishing this new award, ITS Australia aims to celebrate and elevate the increasing impact of women in our sector, ensuring their remarkable achievements receive the visibility they rightfully deserve.”

In addition to the Max Lay award, categories include connected and automated vehicles, smart transport infrastructure, intelligent mobility and R&D, as well as young professionals.
