Infosys and Tennis Australia go beyond court with digital inclusion initiatives to make tennis more accessible and build future leaders.
Infosys has announced a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) collaboration with Tennis Australia to drive new digital learning and accessibility initiatives.
This will create pathways to learning and education for under-represented communities.
This program is part of Infosys and Tennis Australia’s Digital Innovation Partnership, which was recently extended until 2026.
Beyond the court, Infosys has embarked on a journey to leverage digital experiences to have a positive community impact.
Already as a partner committed to the sport in the ANZ region, Infosys has worked with Tennis Australia for initiatives such as the Aces for Bushfire Relief in 2020 and building an AO Virtual Hub in 2021 to enable tournament access digitally in a pandemic-affected year.
Going forward the Infosys and Tennis Australia partnership will focus on using technology for good.
The vision for using technology for good is to enhance accessibility, learnability and inclusivity on and beyond the court.
This five-year collaboration will begin with the enhancement of Tennis Australia’s leadership programs.
Thereby engaging and empowering the leaders of tomorrow to help make positive change in their communities.
How Infosys Digital Learning Platform, Springboard, Will Enhance Leadership Programs
- Power learnability with richer leadership development content: Participants will have access to the full catalogue of online learning modules available through Infosys’ Springboard platform.
- Digital learning: Infosys Springboard platform will help enable accessible digital learning and collaboration experiences for participants of Tennis Australia’s Leadership programs.
- Drive inclusivity with mentorship: Infosys employees will have the opportunity to volunteer and mentor participants on key business and leadership skills contributing to the programs’ value.
Andrew Groth, executive vice president, Infosys and region head, Australia and New Zealand said, “When we renewed our Digital Innovation Partnership at the end of last year, we agreed that the next phase in our relationship would be to jointly build programs that have a larger positive impact on our community.”
“This collaboration will play a role in bridging the digital accessibility gap and bring learning pathways to the disadvantaged.”
Korey Allchin, director of partnerships and international business at Tennis Australia, stated, “Springboard will also give our leaders of tomorrow an opportunity to expand their learning through a state-of-the-art digital learning environment.”
