HEX and Atlassian Foundation: A Continuing Partnership for Impactful Education

Exciting news is on the horizon as HEX proudly announces the continuation of its partnership with the Atlassian Foundation into 2024 and beyond.

The collaborative efforts between HEX and the Atlassian Foundation have already made significant strides in supporting underrepresented students and fostering community engagement. With a renewed commitment, the Atlassian Foundation is set to deepen its relationships with education providers, recognising the value HEX brings to future education.

A Shared Vision:

The Atlassian Foundation acknowledges the unique contributions of HEX in providing community support and education to underserved students.

Steve King, Foundation Director from the Atlassian Foundation expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating, "We are excited to see where this partnership goes. The Foundation is keen to explore new avenues for Atlassian team members to volunteer their knowledge and networks, supporting the next generation.”, King praised HEX for our open-minded approach in sharing knowledge and insights.

Pledge 1% Commitment:

The Atlassian Foundation's commitment to the Pledge 1% initiative since day one is a testament to the company's values. The initiative, championed by Scott Farquhar in 2018, deeply inspired HEX, leading to a commitment to embed impact into the company's DNA. The ongoing support from Atlassian team members demonstrates a full-circle moment, with the generosity of knowledge and resources contributing to HEX' mission and the success of the students they work with.
