July 8, 2012

The iAwards have run for over 18 years and are one of the premier technology awards platforms within Australia’s technology industry. Recently, Deloitte Consulting partner, Kaylene O’Brien, was awarded Victorian ICT Woman of the year at the 2012 iAwards.
Kaylene began her ICT career as a programmer with Andersen Consulting. She was drawn to a career in ICT during her business degree when she realised that the future was digital. She completed a Graduate Diploma in Information Systems from RMIT. In 1996 she joined Deloitte, embraced her career in ICT Consulting and became a Partner at Deloitte in 2008.
She has also been a judge, for two years, as part of the Deloitte Businesswoman of the Year. In this role, she contributes as an advocate for recognising the outstanding impact of female talent within Deloitte.
Robert Hillard, Lead Technology partner at Deloitte Consulting, believes Kaylene’s win highlights the need for organisations and their leaders to continue to address the gender imbalance in the IT industry if they are to recruit, retain and engage high performing talent.
Kaylene won the category highlighting an inspiring Information Communication Technology (ICT) woman ‘who has made a consistently distinguished contribution to the ICT industry’. Kaylene was recognised for broadening the professional base of IT across backgrounds, gender and cultures.
