Flinders’ cinematographer Helen Carter and neuroscientist Dr Mary-Louise Rogers are among 33 finalists in the Women in Innovation Awards.
The awards recognise the success of female innovators in South Australia who are ‘changing the game’ in the fields of engineering, government, maths, science, business, technology, rural and remote living and the arts.
Award finalists are women who live, work and play in South Australia, but whose initiative could have impact anywhere.
They are the unsung heroes, the quiet achievers and the mavericks; each one dedicated to challenging the known or solving the unknown in their contribution to South Australian enterprise.
“What all the finalists have in common is an absolutely clear vision of how they can help solve problems they’ve identified, and a willingness to challenge the status quo,” said acting president of Women in Innovation, Tania Jolley.
“Many of these finalists have come up with innovations which have the potential to change lives, across sectors like health, employment and the environment.”
Women in Innovation is a community of volunteer professionals passionate about innovation and technology striving to support and elevate South Australia’s innovative women.
The award winners will be announced at an event on 6 October 2017.
