ESET Australia Country Manager Kelly Johnson has been named a finalist in the Achiever category of ARN’s Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA). This is her second time being a finalist in the category. The Awards showcase entries from across Australia’s ICT ecosystem, with 205 finalists making the shortlist from a pool of 120 organisations and more than 340 nominations, spanning partner, telco, vendor and distributor businesses.

“ARN congratulates Kelly on becoming a finalist in the Achiever category,” said Cherry Yumul, vice president of Strategic Partnerships and Innovation at IDG. “We applaud your standout contribution in helping to set an industry benchmark for female achievement across Australia. This year WIICTA has generated a volume and calibre of nominees never been seen nor conceivable before. This is an encouraging sign of a positive trend that gender diversity is high on the corporate agenda of more and more businesses in Australia.”

Reflective of a diverse technology network, candidates range from large-scale consultancy giants and global system integrators (GSIs) to emerging start-ups in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney, alongside leading managed service providers, born-in-the-cloud players, specialist solution consultants and boutique digital agencies.

Johnson says she’s honoured to be named a finalist in the Achiever category for the second time. “The Awards really demonstrate the contribution women make to our industry, across multiple roles and business sizes, from graduates starting out in their careers to seasoned leaders helping steer their businesses in complex times. In what has been a difficult 12 months for business across Australia due to COVID-19, it’s gratifying to see the Awards acknowledge the breadth of the contribution women have made and continue to make to the ICT industry’s success.”
