Partnership objectives

To provide meaningful support for their emerging female tech leaders through a customised program to empower their advancement plus providing people leaders inclusive leadership training. Standards Australia also looked to ensure their hiring processes are inclusive through engaging TDC to conduct an Inclusive Hiring Audit.

The solution

Our proposed solution was to create a 3-step road map:

1- Designed an Emerging Leaders in Tech Program to provide meaningful development opportunities for their emerging high-potential female talent, empowering & equipping them to become leaders of influence & impact to own and drive their career aspirations within Standards Australia.

2- Perform an Inclusive Hiring Audit to allow for an in-depth review and analysis of their end to end recruitment process to remove barriers to inclusion and enhance the inclusivity of their hiring process.

  • Service: Bespoke training
They were great - we initially brought them on to support our women in IT program only, however we ended up signing them up for inclusive leadership and hiring projects. Our WIT participants gained insights into their strengths and vision for the future. We really enjoyed working with TDC and will definitely recommend them!
