People & Culture

Driving diversity in tech

We're a data analytics company with a 50/50 gender split in both our executive team & our extended team; made up of people from different backgrounds. Not everyone has come from a "techy" background. We prioritise ability, values and individual ambition, over "on-paper" qualifications.

Notitia's Diversity Initiatives + Workplace Culture‍

Diversity + workplace culture is an ongoing commitment + journey of continuous improvement.

We're an open-minded team with diverse backgrounds, personality types & POVs. It's our strength: the reason why we produce high quality outcomes & solve the big problems for our clients. Read how we do it here.

We hope that by sharing our workplace culture + diversity initiatives, we keep up this important conversation.

A key finding in a recent Forbes insight study concluded that diversity drives innovation in the workplace. Research shows that inclusive teams perform up to 30% better in high-diversity environments, according to Gartner.

Australia’s gender representation in STEM

According to the AU Gov's STEM Equity Monitor, in 2022:

🔬 Women made up 27% of the total STEM workforce (which was 1% less than year prior)

👩💻 23% of all managers were women

🤑 Gender pay gap was $27K (based on full time, total renumeration).

What will change this?

Real action from business leaders:

➡ Actively find & hire deserving female candidates.

➡ Pay them fairly.

Notitia has a 50% female workforce, with our executive + broader team an even 50/50 split. This hasn't happened by accident.

The diversity + workplace culture initiatives we've put into play:

⚫ Flexible working arrangements throughout all levels of our team, from graduates through to directors. Our people can work part time, remotely + in flexible arrangements. This allows them to allocate the rest of the week for other parts of their life including: balancing career with family, pursuing other commitments; ensuring their health is a priority.

⚫ Paid roles and opportunities available to those who are changing career from a non-technical background.

⚫ Visas to enable Notitia to employ individuals with the appropriate skills who are not Australian citizens.

⚫ Paid roles and opportunities are available to people who are changing career from a non-technical background. Our team is strengthen by different skills & backgrounds, we haven't all come straight from a STEM career, we also have PhDs in health science, neuroscience, biomedical science, design & communications.

⚫ Generous parental leave policy and return-to-work plans (with additional paid leave) to allow our people to spend time with their family before transitioning back to the workplace.
