At Codex, we believe in the power of technology to make a positive impact on the world. That’s why we’re committed to using our skills and expertise to support organisations that are making a real difference in the world, and why we elect to support an annual pro bono project.

This year, we had the privilege of partnering with Girls from Oz, an Australian not-for-profit organisation that empowers students in remote Australia, particularly Aboriginal girls and young women. Through the performing arts, g-oz fosters self-confidence, communication skills, and a passion for learning, enabling these young women to pursue their dreams and make a meaningful impact on their communities.

Earlier this year, we worked closely with the g-oz to undertake a technical discovery aimed at understanding how their CRM could facilitate their donor stewardship moving forward. And in the new year, we’ll continue to collaborate with them to implement all the recommendations from our Discovery Report.

Partnering with g-oz has been a deeply fulfilling experience that aligns with our ESG goals and our commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals SDG 4 and SDG 5, which focus on quality education and gender equality.

Beyond the technical aspect of our partnership, the most rewarding part has been the opportunity to connect with the young women of g-oz. Last Friday, we had the pleasure of welcoming the Girls from Oz team to our Brisbane office for a morning tea, ice-breaker games, and an impromptu performance that showcased the girls’ talent and passion.

Interacting with these young women firsthand reinforced the profound impact g-oz is making in their lives. Their resilience, determination, and unwavering spirit are a testament to the power of programs like g-oz to empower girls and young women to reach their full potential.

We are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to partner with g-oz and to play a role in supporting their mission. We look forward to continuing our collaboration and witnessing the remarkable achievements of the young women they serve.
