At Digital Centre, we recognise that the rapid and unexpected spread of COVID-19 and its wide-ranging impacts have caused severe disruption in all parts of everyday life across societies around the world. As we adapt in our own way, we also want to make sure we are doing our part in supporting communities and industries in which we operate.
We joined forces with our Steering Committee members to collate a number of offers and initiatives that will hopefully make tech organisations operate more smoothly, limiting the effects of the global pandemic.
For more information visit the respective Steering Committee members’ websites.
