DDD Perth is Perth's largest community run conference for the tech community. Their goal is to create an approachable event that appeals to the whole community, especially people that don't normally get to attend or speak at conferences. The conference is run on a Saturday, and strives to be inclusive of everyone in the Perth tech community.
Furthermore, DDD Perth aims to both create opportunities for underrepresented minorities, juniors and first-time speakers to present as well as influence the wider software industry to encourage such opportunities more broadly.

The KALEIDOSCOPE Initiative is all about harnessing the economic benefits of migration by supporting newcomers to obtain employment in their field of expertise and building the capacity of employers to reap the rewards of a diverse workforce.
Diverse workforces are proven to provide bottom-line benefits to businesses, as well as improved problem solving, creativity and innovation. The City of Stirling’s Kaleidoscope Initiative (KI) project aims to harness the economic benefits of its diverse population by helping newcomers to Australia secure employment in their field of expertise and support employers to benefit from this diverse workforce. This project has been developed in partnership with Toronto Region Immigrant Employment Council (TRIEC) and funded by Office of Multicultural Interests, Government of Western Australia.
