Ear Science Institute Australia CEO Sandra Bellekom has been named one of The Australian Financial Review 100 Women of Influence for 2019.
Sandra received a surprise nomination by a major international hearing implant manufacturer who recognised her global vision.
Hence, Sandra was nominated in the Global category and named a finalist alongside change-makers at Fred Hollows Foundation and Vogue.
Sandra was thrilled to be nominated: “It is an honour to be considered amongst such a distinguished group of women. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that my passion for my work with the hearing impaired would result in such an opportunity."
Ear Science Founding Director, Professor Marcus Atlas, congratulated Sandra on her hard work:
"We are extremely fortunate to have Sandra leading our institute with such passion, skill and integrity. Whilst we all know of Sandra’s influence, now Australia knows it too."
