Transport Women Australia Limited (TWAL) and Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific has announced that four women from various sectors of the transport industry are the 2020 winners of the Driving The Difference Scholarships.

They are Isaiah Tomkinson of Lindsay Transport; Alexandra Del Piero of Metro Trains, Sydney; Lynette Gray of Robertson's Bus and Coaches; and Hannah Stewart of Stows Waste Management.

Transport Women Australia Limited says it is proud to award these scholarships as it showcases the diversity of the applicants and the courses they wish to study.

"It is exceedingly difficult for us to make the decision to get to the final four," says TWAL chair Jacquelene Brotherton.

"Inquiries for the scholarships were amazing and the applicants set such high standards each season, it makes you wish you had more to bestow.

"We have winners from the train, bus, trucking, and waste industry with shows the diversity of our membership and applicants; we were quite stoked that they came from three different states."

In 2019, the inaugural Driving The Difference scholarships, were presented at the TWAL 20th anniversary gala dinner. However, as with all planned transport association events during 2020, COVID restrictions have forced the TWAL to present the winners’ certificates at the end of the year in the capital cities where the applicants are based.
