TechDiversity Awards 2024

Winners & Merit Winners Announced

DE+I

A social enterprise established in 2015, we demonstrate how incorporating Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE+I) into Australian tech workforces fosters greater growth, innovation, and a more vibrant work environment.

Our vision

TechDiversity foundation inspiration in every boardroom

Boardrooms have made progress when it comes to DE+I in the workplace, but more needs to be done. We are here to change that. Through DE+I we are tackling boardroom challenges, such as talent shortages, ESG issues, societal shifts and building a culture of innovation. Our vision is to inspire boardrooms to harness DE+I with an evidence-based and best-practice approach.

Companies that are diverse, equitable, and inclusive are better able to respond to challenges, win top talent, and meet the needs of different customer bases’.
