Multi-award-winning Queensland manufacturing business Australian Innovative Systems’ (AIS) Chief Executive Officer Elena Gosse has been selected as a finalist in two categories in the 2018 Women in Industry Awards.
The Women in Industry Awards recognise and reward the achievements of women working within the manufacturing, mining, engineering, process control industries and commercial road transport industries, and aims to raise the profile of women within industry, as well as promote and encourage excellence.
Elena is a finalist in two categories, the Industry Advocacy Award, which recognises individuals who have helped shape a positive view of their industry and/or helped to create a policy change which benefits those working in the sector, and the Excellence in Manufacturing Award, which recognises an individual who has thought ‘outside the box’ to implement an outstanding personal contribution to their manufacturing business and the wider manufacturing community.
Elena said she was honoured to be a finalist for the two award categories, which coincides with Brisbane-based AIS celebrating its 25th anniversary earlier this year.
“I am passionate about promoting the role women play in what may be considered traditionally male dominated industries, Elena said.
“At AIS we’ve changed the face of the water disinfection and manufacturing industries by disrupting the ‘status quo’ with our innovative technology.
“Being an advocate and role model for women in the manufacturing sector is very important to me. It’s part of paving the way for the next generation of women to succeed.”
AIS is one of Australia’s most trusted water disinfection companies, exporting its technology to more than 55 countries worldwide. AIS technology is trusted by leading aquatic centres, swim schools, competition swimming pools, resorts, hotels, water parks and family swimming pools all over the world and the business is recognised as a leader in the design, production and supply of commercial and residential chlorine generators and water disinfection technology.
The awards gala dinner will be held on Thursday 14 June, at Doltone House, Jones Bay, in Sydney. The 2018 Women in Industry Conference is also being held on Thursday 14 June.
