Diversity and Inclusion

"We are all united and bound together by our shared humanity."

EDT’s commitment to diversity and inclusion 

We commit to treating all people with equality, respect, and fairness regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ability, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture, or any other arbitrary measure.

We are all united and bound together by our shared humanity. Diversity benefits our team, our business, and our communities.

We embrace diversity and understand the need to take decisive action to drive change. We take personal responsibility for fostering a culture that is unconditionally inclusive.

  • increase the proportion of our employees who are First Nations peoples, people with disabilities, women in highly technical roles, and seniors, 
  • conduct an Acknowledgment of Country ceremony at our Brisbane office (Nov 2022), 
  • hire two First Nation interns, and 
  • create and implement a Reconciliation Action Plan.

Reconciliation Action Plan

EDT has joined a network of more than 3,000 corporate, government, and not-for-profit organisations that have made a formal commitment to reconciliation through the Reconciliation Australia Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) program.

Our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan for 2024-25 communicates our commitment to the RAP process to our staff, customers, and the broader community. We will review and identify ways to improve and support employment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the information technology sector.

Acknowledgment of Country

In the spirit of reconciliation, EDT acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community and their continuing cultural and spiritual customs and practices.  

We acknowledge the Yuggera and Turrbal people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which our Australian team works. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present and emerging and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
