How it all 
started

New research has revealed major gaps in digital skills across Australia’s workforce, with 87% of jobs now requiring digital literacy skills.  By 2025, Australia will need up over 200,000 digital technology workers, but we only train 7000 IT graduates per year.  These statistics are even more revealing in Queensland, where 47% of businesses don’t feel comfortable competing in a digital world, and don’t believe that the Queensland’s Government is doing enough to help them compete.  

Founded in 2020, the Queensland Digital Association was created in a post-Covid landscape to address and find solutions for key business risks in Queensland’s digital readiness.  A diverse cohort of passionate digital technology leaders came together, committed to the sustainable and strategic growth of Queensland’s digital economy, job creation, regional advancement and better public perception of a traditionally myopic industry, ITC.
