#TechDiversity has become a supporter of Safer Internet Day 2019.

Safer Internet Day (SID) is an annual, worldwide event will be held on Tuesday 5 February 2019 to help encourage a better internet, with this year’s theme—’Together for a better internet’ encourages individuals to create a better internet by developing four, critical skills. We call these skills the 4Rs: Respect, Responsibility, Reasoning and Resilience.

Celebrated globally in 130 countries, Safer Internet Day is coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.

#TechDiversity has joined Optus, ANZ, nbn and Brumbies Women’s Rugby to support Safer Internet Day.

The Office also provides audience-specific content to help educate all Australians about online safety including young people, women, teachers, parents, seniors and community groups.
Their goal is to empower all Australians to explore the online world—safely.
