Congratulations to Dr Katherine Woodthorpe AO for receiving an Order of Australia for distinguished service to business through venture capital, management and commercialisation initiatives for research and technology based enterprises, and to industry organisations.
“I am surprised and delighted to receive this honour. I hope it encourages more nominations of women in the science and business worlds as there are so many more important contributions going unrecognised” says Dr Woodthorpe AO who is an independent member on the CMCRC board and has been cited in various media as one of Australia’s most influential people in innovation. She has a strong track record for commercialisation and held a broad range of management and board positions, in Australia and overseas, as well as expertise and track records in public affairs including media and government relations. CMCRC is proud to have Dr Woodthorpe on the board at CMCRC and looks forward to working with her into the future. Dr Katherine Woodthorpe AO
