Techdiversity foundation and ACS partner to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the Australian tech sector


Agreement aims to boost diversity across the Australian technology sector



11 May, 2023


The TechDiversity Foundation and the Australian Computer Society (ACS) have joined forces to promote the importance of diverse, equitable, and inclusive tech workforces across Australia.


ACS is already involved in TechDiversity’s Community Connect events and will continue to support this important networking series by hosting events across all ACS State Branch offices. 


TechDiversity will make available their DEI learning programs via the TechDiversity’s Academy to ACS members, who are technology professionals with diverse expertise in areas such as software development, network engineering, cybersecurity, project management, and more, at a discounted rate of 15%.


"This partnership between ACS and TechDiversity demonstrates our commitment to building a world-leading technology workforce in Australia that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Through our collaboration, we aim to positively impact the tech sector and provide opportunities to close the digital divide," said Chris Vein, ACS CEO.


"Our collaboration signifies the importance and the power of collective action to drive meaningful change towards greater diversity, equity, and inclusion in the tech sector. TechDiversity is thrilled to partner with ACS and work together towards creating a culture of belonging in the Australian tech industry," said Luli Adeyemo, Executive Director, TechDiversity.
