Sally-Ann Williams


I am the Engineering Community & Outreach Manager for Google Australia which means I'm responsible for a broad portfolio of programs including leading Google’s efforts in Computer Science and STEM education & outreach (K-12), research collaborations with universities and entrepreneurship and startup engagement.

In my role leading Google’s CS/STEM education engagement I manage over 60 partnerships & programs designed to inspire students, equip teachers, and connect the community to the possibilities careers in CS can lead to. Most recently this work has included national implementation strategies to support ACARA’s Digital Technology curriculum and helping to position Australia as a nation of innovators.

In my work with the startup community I manage partnerships and collaborates with co-working spaces, incubators and accelerators, universities and the public sector to build and grow the ecosystem.

Prior to joining Google 10 years ago, I worked at several Australian tertiary institutions in a range of academic and academic administration roles spanning executive education, public sector management, research and postgraduate degrees and tertiary management. A life long learner I hold an undergraduate and research masters degree and several other postgraduate qualifications. In 2016 I was a NSW Finalist in the Telstra Business Women of the Year Awards.
