Tech Reflects

Support a National Mission

Where Australian tech workforce diversity and cultural profile data is benchmarked against the broader community.

Play your part in a world first study, in an unprecedented national effort, we are calling on business leaders to express their interest in having their technology teams join this significant research effort. This represents a groundbreaking intersection of DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) and Big Data—a global first where we benchmark workforce diversity and cultural insights against the broader Australian community. It’s an initiative ensuring that everyone has the chance to contribute to and thrive within the technology sector.
