#TechDiversity Merit Award winners for 2017 announced

The #TechDiversity Foundation is very pleased to announce the #TechDiversity Merit Award winners for the 2017 awards program.

A total of 13 projects/initiatives have been recognised across the four categories of media and advertising, government, education and business. The submissions were assessed according to expressions of behaviour, initiatives, commitment and courage — key touchstones to embrace inclusion and drive diversity.

The winners (listed below) will be presented with their #TechDiversity Merit Awards at a ceremony on Monday 31 July. Their achievements will then be recognised and celebrated among our community at the #TechDiversity Gala Dinner on Wednesday 2 August – at which we will announce the four category award winners, as well as the overall #TechDiversity Champion.

All nominees are still in the running to win the 2017 Innovation Minister’s Diversity Award, which will also be presented at the Awards and Gala Dinner.

Tickets are still available for
