Cloud service provider, Dropbox, has teamed up with Diverse City Careers (DCC) to encourage diversity in Australian workplaces with traditionally low female participation, including the technology industry.
The initiative will see the companies engage in awareness campaigns, educational events, webinars and free resources to help women pursue careers within supportive environments.
Dropbox managing director A/NZ, Charlie Wood, said working with DCC aligns with Dropbox’s local and international efforts to attract and retain top women and minority talent in the workforce.
“We want to be a company where Dropboxers from any background can build a career they love. That’s why we’re committed to building a team with diverse perspectives focused on creating innovative products that are used by more than 400 million people from around the world. We are working hard to minimise unconscious bias in the workplace by changing how we recruit, retain and promote employees with unique life experiences,” he added.
DCC co-founder, Gemma Lloyd, said, “we are absolutely humbled by the amount of support we’ve received both from the community and the industry since DCC’s inception. Diversity and inclusion are becoming a key focus with more and more companies, which is fantastic to see.”
