DXC Technology focuses on developing and implementing initiatives that make a sustainable impact to its people, customers, partners and the wider community. The company's Social Impact Practice is to improve societal outcomes and increase diversity and inclusion through technology and innovation.

DXC Technology has embarked on an exciting partnership with ANZ Bank and Vestone Capital to donate thirty reconditioned laptops to Ganbina, a charity that mentors young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia.

Empowering communities

The vision of DXC Technology's First Nations Program in Australia is to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their communities in achieving self-determination and proportional representation in all areas of society.

The company is invested in creating technology education and career opportunities to make a difference in the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, families and communities.

DXC Technology strives to enable access to technology across all education levels, provide opportunities for positive exposure to technology throughout primary and high school and increase the number of IT education and employment pathways available to First Nations peoples.

Supporting educational opportunities

DXC Technology founded the Community Technology Enablement Program (CTEP) to connect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities with technology, supporting educational opportunities and building community capacity for self-determination.

“During these COVID times, each opportunity to support regional and remote communities is particularly important. Through DXC’s business partner ecosystem, we seek to take the risk and logistical challenges out of making donations, including cultural engagement and technical support; to ensure the donations are aligned with community needs and expectations,” says Stuart Meadley, Program Lead for DXC’s First Nations Program.

“The CTEP is a key part of our Reconciliation Action Plan, because it enables DXC to play to its strengths, while supporting mob. I hope the devices will help our people to progress their education, and lead them to consider careers in ICT, like I did because of my exposure to technology as a kid,” adds Simon O’Toole, DXC’s First Nations Community Engagement Lead, and a Eualayai / Gamillaroi man and Senior Technical Consultant with DXC.
