About the awards
Brilliant Women in Digital Health is a network created by Telstra Health. Now in its second year, the 2022 Brilliant Women in Digital Health Awards attracted almost 100 nominations recognising women working in diverse areas in the health and aged care sectors. This initiative celebrates their achievements and contributions to digital health and technology throughout Australia and internationally.
Attracting such a high calibre of entries from women in the fields of medical research, academia, health and aged care and the private, government and not-for-profit sectors provided a challenging task for our notable judges.
The 25 award recipients profiled in this report were selected by the judges based on the following broad criteria which recognised:
- Technical expertise or contribution, with significant impact, in the health, aged care, or health and medical research sectors.
- Emerging leaders influencing or being responsible for digital transformation.
- People making a positive impact supporting other women in the sector through mentorship or upskilling.
- Demonstrated innovation in developing unique solution/s to address problems or opportunities.
- Impact and influence in the digital industry, through work in their organisation and in the broader digital community.
- Success in establishing and/or championing a digital vision or innovation.
Award recipients were formally recognised at awards events in Melbourne and Sydney on 13 October 2022.
The awards are an initiative of the Brilliant Connected Women in Digital Health Network, which has more than 1,200 members united by an interest in digital health. The network provides a community to share ideas, create connections, inspire opportunities and celebrate successes.
