Infosys enters into CSR collaboration with Tennis Australia
Infosys has entered into a corporate social responsibility (CSR) collaboration with Tennis Australia to implement new digital learning and accessibility initiatives to create pathways to learning and education for under-represented communities.
According to the Indian IT services provider, the program is part of its Digital Innovation Partnership with Tennis Australia, which was extended recently until 2026.
Andrew Groth — Executive Vice President of Infosys and Region Head, Australia and New Zealand said: “We are incredibly proud to be working in close collaboration with Tennis Australia on a number of new digital accessibility and learning initiatives.
“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.”
Currently, Infosys is working on improving digital experiences for tennis fans, coaches, players, and the media at the ongoing Australian Open 2022. Beyond the tennis court, Infosys is said to utilize the capabilities to impart a positive impact on the community.
Infosys said that it will offer its digital learning platform called Springboard to help improve the leadership programs and alongside Tennis Australia, hopes to generate equitable opportunities and, in the future, positively affect grassroots tennis in the region.
Korey Allchin — Tennis Australia Director of Partnerships and International Business said: “We’re excited to see that the extension of our partnership with Infosys will also include programs that enable a more equitable community.
“We are working together to build more accessible digital experiences for everyone who engages with the Australian Open and our sport. Infosys Springboard will also give our leaders of tomorrow an opportunity to expand their learning through a state of the art digital learning environment.”
