Sarah Pearce recognised as a Telstra Business Woman of the Year
CASS Deputy Director Dr Sarah Pearce has been recognised for her contribution to the development of the astronomy and space sectors as a Telstra Business Woman of the Year 2020 -- winner of the NSW ‘Public Sector & Academia’ category. Sarah leads CSIRO's involvement in the international Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project to build the world's largest radio telescope, and was Australia's science negotiator for the SKA international treaty. Sarah also leads CSIRO's space research program, which includes the CSIRO Centre for Earth Observation and the Australian share of the NovaSAR-1 satellite facility.

In congratulating Sarah, CSIRO Chief Executive Dr Larry Marshall noted, "Sarah is an expert in her field, but she also has incredible leadership abilities. She builds trust with her stakeholders and is highly respected by the people she works with for her integrity, her dedication and her drive to bring success to those around her." The Telstra Business Women's Awards, now in their 25th year, recognise the most outstanding women in leadership, in categories including small and large business, social enterprise, public sector and academia, and emerging leaders.
