Other winners included Megan Davis, expert member on the UN permanent forum on Indigenous issues, Monica Meldrum from Whole Kids, Sally Macindoe, partner and head of diversity at Norton Rose, Alison Page from Saltwater Freshwater Arts Alliance and Dr Kimberley Clayfield, executive manager of space sciences and technology CSIRO.
