支持Ladies Who Tech的理由:



Make things better. 

Joanna is a Counsellor for the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science at the Australian Embassy in Beijing. She has a Master's Degree in Public Policy from the Australian National University, and Bachelor Degrees in Science and Arts (Arts with Honours) from Melbourne University.

Joanna has led reforms in innovation and science policy, most notably in developing the 2015 National Innovation and Science Agenda, establishing the Office of Innovation and Science Australia, and implementing the 2014 review of the long-running Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs) programme. She also led significant reforms in environmental management of offshore petroleum resources–working in 2012/13 to establish the National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority (NOPSEMA) as the single independent national regulator for oil and gas exploration and development in Commonwealth waters.

Joanna has also previously worked as policy advocate for private sector, representing the interests of Samoan businesses to promote investment and private sector development in Samoa, at the Samoa Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Why support Ladies Who Tech:

Because a prosperous, innovative and inclusive society needs both women and men - especially in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and entrepreneurship!
