Diversity, Equity + Inclusion
Inspiration for Leaders
We show the world that tech workforces with Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE+I) brings more growth, innovation and joy.
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’.
Belonging for a thriving world
We are not only champions for DE+I as a force for great economical progress, but also champions for all people who are curious about technology as a career choice.
Australia’s ACS Digital Pulse shows that tech jobs pay better than any other industry, yet there is a chronic tech skill shortage within Australia, by 2025 the country will need another 156,000 digital technology workers (Source: RMIT Online and Deloitte Access Economics, 2021).
According to the World Economic Forum diversity is the bridge on which we can cross the skills gap. Our purpose is to inspire, inform, excite and foster a culture of belonging within technology workforces. Making them more attractive to potential employees.
Glassdoor found that 67% of job seekers feel diversity is an important factor when considering companies and job offers.
Together we are better, stronger, smarter.
