Introducing the ITS Australia Woman of the Year Award


A new award to recognise the outstanding contribution of a woman in Australia’s intelligent transport systems industry has been announced by ITS Australia.

The inaugural ‘Woman of the Year Award’ will join the seven existing award categories and will be 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.”

For fifteen years, the ITS Australia Awards have recognised outstanding work within the industry, celebrating the organisations and individuals who are shaping the nation’s transport technology landscape.

The award categories recognise organisations and projects that have excelled across the diverse fields of ITS including connected and automated vehicles, smart transport infrastructure, intelligent mobility, transport data, and research and development.

In addition, the ITS Australia Awards recognise individuals at both ends of the career spectrum with the ‘Young Professional Award’ highlighting an exceptional early career professional and the ‘Max Lay Lifetime Achievement Award’, honouring an industry leader who has championed the vision of ITS throughout their career.

Recognising the growth and national scale of the awards program, the 2024 ceremony will be hosted in Perth for the first time, offering attendees a chance to engage with the burgeoning ITS industry in Western Australia.
