The #TechDiversity Foundation is committed to amplifying diversity awareness and achieving a culture of inclusion, through conversation, collaboration and action among a committed #TechDiversity community.

The initiative is spearheaded by a core committee of volunteers representing Mia Consulting Services, Method9, Nexec Leaders, MizTee and EasyAuthoring. This core committee is supported by a wider team representing a number of industry groups and businesses – including Australian Computer Society (ACS), Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA), Vic ICT for Women, Australian Women in Security (AWSN) and the Victorian Government.

With a focus on strengthening frameworks to increase the participation of women and minority groups in the digital technology industry, our vision is for inclusion to be built into all facets of the digital industry sector – specifically education, business, government, and media and advertising culture. Our flagship #TechDiversity Awards showcase what can be achieved across the sectors in building diversity and inclusion.

Annual #TechDiversity Awards and events program

The #TechDiversity Foundation is proud to organise and host the annual #TechDiversity Awards, including an awards presentation evening. The foundation and its members also host a series of networking evenings and diversity events throughout the year.
