Creating a connected ecosystem of women & non-binary folk in technology

Explore. Engage. Empower

Currently, in Australia, there is a shortage of diversity in technology and half of women drop out of the sector by mid-career.

We can do better.

Our Community is built to help support, encourage and amplify one another so we can get more diverse people into influential tech roles!

We're also excited to work with forward thinking organisations to help them build out balanced technical teams. Find out more here.

"Gretchen + The Human Collective have been invaluable in helping us become the organisation we aspire to be: diverse, inclusive, excellent. The 21st century requires a different human operating logic to the past - we create more value for our clients, are more successful as a business, and are having more fun along the way!"

The lack of diverse representation in technology carries a major cost for women, companies, and the entire sector. Demand for workers with tech skills will grow by as much as 90% over the next 15 years, and business leaders are projecting a shortfall within the next three years. The sector must figure out how to keep pace or pay a high cost.
We want to help you recruit, retain & promote underrepresented talent.

Community. The Human Collective is centred around a community.

The Human Collective is for women with the courage and tenacity to dream & do. We are innovators, brimming with ideas and curiosity, hungry for the chance to build better. We come together to make better tech and support one another on the journey.

Partners. Organisations who are passionate about change come on board as partners.

Diverse tech teams are good for business, but they are hard to create and maintain. The pipeline is not passive; it has values that hold people back based on their gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality & physical abilities. It reinforces the idea that only some belong. The Human Collective can help your organisation change this by helping you to attract and retain great women.
