Location Host & Sponsor
This is our 2nd annual Tech Inclusion Melbourne, convening the tech industry to focus on solutions to diversity and inclusion!
Our theme this year is “Voices of Innovation” – featuring diverse, underrepresented voices building the innovative technologies and cultures of our future. Join us for keynotes, panel discussions, solo talks and an interactive session focusing on allyship in tech.
Join us in learning new solutions, meeting diverse people who care, being stretched in a safe environment, and gaining new tools and strength to advocate for change. Then join us for a reception in the evening to network, debrief and unwind.

Tech Inclusion events are a safe and innovative space for people across every gender, race, ethnicity, religion, country of origin, sexual orientation, visible and invisible ability, and age, as well as veterans and people who have been incarcerated. Our Code of Conduct will be visible and enforced.
We work hard to make our events accessible to everyone – the venue is wheelchair accessible; we’ll have seats up front reserved for wheelchairs, people who are deaf, hard of hearing and/or visually impaired; we’ll have live captioning at the stage; there will be vegan, dairy free and gluten free food options.
If you need an interpreter, volunteer guide, Mother’s Room, prayer room or have other accessibility or dietary needs we’ll do our best – please let us know when you RSVP!”
Change Catalyst builds inclusive tech ecosystems through strategic advising, startup programmes and resources, and a series of events around the globe.
