Michelle Sandford and Vee Pendergrast are among the 87 nominees listed Women in Technology Western Australia (or WiTWA) awards.
WiTWA is a Perth-based not for profit organisation designed to help women in technology-based industries to expand their networks and professional topics.
Michelle is a Service Delivery Manager at Microsoft, but she is probably better known as a technology evangelist, a developer advocate, and a brand storyteller. She rose through the ranks at the Australian Computer Society to become Women’s Chair before recently being elected as Chairman.
Vee is the Co-founder, Director and Chief Executive Officer of Stirfire Studios, a Perth based games studio. The venture was founded in late 2010 as a new “home” to support WA game developers and digital media professionals attempting to gain ground in emerging mediums including games, apps and digital platforms.
The awards are open to the public as a People’s Choice award, and voting is now open.
