Non-Senior Staff Member – Metropolitan Council 2016
Joint Winner of the Award – Nicola Daaboul, Bankstown City Council
Nicola is an inspiration to young women seeking a career in the traditionally male-dominated field of engineering. She has spoken at national engineering conferences about leading innovation and excellence in this area, and more recently presented at the IMFE World Congress on Municipal Engineering and has embarked on an ambitious program to streamline Bankstown City Council’s works ordering and customer request processes, all whilst undertaking a full-time course load for her three university degrees.
Nicola is not afraid to take the lead, ask questions, speak in public, question why we are ‘doing the things the way we always have’ and stand up for herself and her female co-workers.
