The ABC is the national broadcaster of Australia. It launched in 1932 with a single radio service and has developed into a multi-platform media operation and internationally renowned public broadcaster. The ABC has become a much-loved part of the Australian society and its cultural fabric, broadcasting world-class news and current affairs, factual programs, live sports and major events.

The ABC is funded by direct grants from the Australian Government and run by a government-appointed Board, which is 50/50 gender-balanced and includes the incredible force that is Ita Buttrose, AC OBE, as its Chair.

Product & Technology (referred to internally as P&T) has one of the largest representations of cultural diversity across ABC and is committed to improving its recruitment, retention and leadership development practices and providing a diverse and inclusive workplace.

Project F is fortunate to be championed internally by the leader of ABC’s digital product teams, Joel Brydon and our executive sponsor, CDIO Damian Cronan, who says:

“Project F’s innovative approach to gender equity in technology and it’s approach to driving accountability is having a real-world impact on our measures around WIT at the ABC. Their dedication to actionable change and measurable outcomes is not just empowering women in tech; it’s paving the way for a more equitable and successful future for the industry overall.”
