BOLDMoves White PaperWe are delighted to announce the launch and release of the #BOLDmoves White Paper on Wednesday 16th November 2016. This White Paper was the culmination of a year of work, events, think tanks and research to create a blueprint to drive diversity and equality in the tech industries.
In late 2015, Victorian ICT for Women, in collaboration with business innovation consultants Elabor8, established a cross industry think tank called #BOLDMoves. The bold vision was to uncover high impact diversity initiatives to see women equally represented in digital & technology roles, specifically in leadership roles. We were inspired to take a new approach to this complex problem, as the existing diversity initiatives were not delivering. Over the following twelve months, business leaders were involved in designing and trialling new diversity initiatives in their own organisations. These were a mix of technology & HR professionals across nance, education, government and technology sectors. Most importantly, #BOLDMoves created a physical and online community to share and build on these ideas, trial and uncover existing initiatives worth amplifying. We used the power of diversity to solve a complex diversity problem. This paper shares the inspiration, methodology, initiatives and successes of this unique experiment. We hope to inspire employers of Victoria’s most in demand workforce to be bold, to challenge themselves to be innovative, and expect high impact results from their diversity initiatives.
