Vic ICT for Women championed at 2019 TechDiversity Awards
Australian individuals and organisations working to boost under-represented groups’ engagement in the digital technology sector have been recognised at this year’s TechDiversity Awards.
Vic ICT for Women was named TechDiversity Champion last night for its work helping girls and women at all levels become leaders in the digital tech and information and communications technology (ICT) space through its networking events, career advice and free resource of female tech speakers.
Meanwhile, Deloitte’s ‘Australia’s Outstanding 50 LGBTI Leaders’ campaign, encouraging people to “bring their whole selves to work” and celebrating the company’s LGBTI leaders, earned people’s choice.
Project Evolve at nbn — which sought to create gender equality in the company’s systems engineering and operations (SEO) team — topped the business category, while edtech start-up girledworld took out the education award for its work helping teenage girls develop business and leadership skills and mindsets needed for the future of work.
Victorian Minister for Jobs, Innovation and Trade Martin Pakula, who attended the event, said the awards are “a great way to recognise and celebrate the organisations and individuals that are making such important contributions in this space”.
TechDiversity Foundation Co-Founder Deirdre Diamante said they had “the highest number of nominations ever from entrants who are truly aware of the value of diversity and what it can do for businesses and organisations”.
