Presented by Ann Williams
The NZ Geomechanics Lecture is the premier award of the New Zealand Geotechnical Society. It is presented by a person prominent in Geomechanics who can, in the presentation, contribute a statement of significance and value relevant to New Zealand.
In 2022, this award is presented to Ann Williams as a recognition of her long-standing contribution to the geotechnical profession in New Zealand, especially to understanding the geotechnical hazard and risk issues. The Committee would like to specifically mention the exceptional professional work Ann has carried out through the years, the mentorship to younger generations, the role model for diversity and the leadership she has demonstrated for our industry.
