Queensland Fire and Emergency Services Commissioner Katarina Carroll has been named the joint winner of the Government and Academia Award at the 2015 Telstra Business Women’s Awards last night.
Judges applauded Ms Carroll’s impressive career in a male-dominated workforce.
Ms Carroll says the award is a fantastic achievement.
Katarina Carroll: “I’ve won the award, but there are so many people that actually also contributed to what I’ve won. So it is truly an amazing experience and it’s an honor to represent my state and it’s an honor to represent Queensland Fire and Emergency Services.”
