Driving the Difference scholarship winners announced

Six women will have the chance to further develop their careers in the transport industry after being chosen as the 2022 recipients of the Driving the Difference scholarships organised by Transport Women Australia and supported by Daimler Truck Australia

Transport Women Australia (TWAL) has announced its Driving the Difference scholarship winners for 2022.

Now running for four years, TWAL – together with its sponsor Daimler Truck Australia Pacific – provides this opportunity annually to women in the transport and logistics industry who want to either advance their career or to enter the industry.

The range of courses selected by candidates in 2022 has been the most varied since the inception of the Driving the Difference scholarship program.

TWAL says the quality of applicants has been extremely high since the beginning, making the task of selecting scholarship winners a difficult one.

“This year was the hardest year of judging that we have had so far, and it is always disappointing that you cannot award them to everybody,” says TWAL chair Jacquelene Brotherton.

“However, we have six very worthy candidates who will be presented with their certificates at end of year functions in the city closest to them.”

The successful applicants for 2022 are:

  • Ainsleigh Bilato, Adelaide
  • Brooke Tran, Perth
  • Ellen Tandy, Forbes, NSW
  • Nichole Speers, Wollongong, NSW
  • Joana Feiteira, Sydney
  • Sally-Ann Eather, Sydney

“All the candidates provided outstanding applications and courses that will assist them in advancing within our industry and contribute to the future of all women as leaders. TWAL and Daimler are very proud to support women as female participation continues to grow in the industry,” Brotherton says.

“Leadership skills and careers are enhanced by programmes such as these, and the opportunity that the scholarship provides, being awarded the Driving the Difference scholarship means that those successful applicants can undertake a course of study that might otherwise be out of their reach.”
