Nominations are open for the second #TechDiversity awards, which recognises how the digital sector fosters diversity.

Gender diversity is a focus of the awards, but they also recognise other minority groups including people with disabilities, Indigenous peoples and LGBTIQ communities. Successful entrants will champion the Tech Diversity values of behaviour, initiative, commitment and courage.

Submissions are open to government, education, media/advertising and business.

The #TechDiversity Awards are run by the #TechDiversity Foundation, an industry-wide collaboration involving organisations including the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA), Australian Computer Society (ACS), Spatial Industries Business Association and Australian Women in Security. The Victorian Government and RMIT are the major sponsors.

#TechDiversity Leaders will be announced in each category in mid-July, and an overall #TechDiversity Champion named at the gala dinner on 2 August.

Nominations are open now and close on 16 June.
