Pride Centre Welcomes Splunk as an Official Partner

The Victorian Pride Centre warmly welcomes Splunk Inc. as an Official Partner.

To mark the partnership, Victorian Pride Centre Chair, Jude Munro AO, and CEO, Justine Dalla Riva, met with Splunk’s Group Vice President of ANZ Simon Eid, ANZ Partner Manager Andrea Newman and Senior Sales Engineer James Polizzi at the Victorian Pride Centre.

Splunk turns data into doing with the Data-to-Everything(™) Platform, helping organisations to investigate, monitor, analyze and act on data. Splunk’s mission is to remove the barriers between data and action, enabling everyone to thrive in the Data Age and supporting organisations and initiatives that rely on data for social impact.

The Victorian Pride Centre will be a vibrant LGBTIQ+ community hub. Key LGBTIQ+ organisations will be housed at the Pride Centre. Splunk’s partnership with the Victorian Pride Centre offers the LGBTIQ+ community the opportunity to benefit from the Splunk for Good program, which transforms the connective power of data into a strategic asset for nonprofits, universities, organisations and people working to do good in the world.

The partnership with Splunk also offers the Victorian Pride Centre much needed operational funds as the Centre draws close to finalizing construction and opening.

Splunk joins IBM, Founding Principal Partner, and Founding Partners, Lifeview, House of Wellness and NAB to form part of corporate Australia’s commitment to supporting equality and diversity.

The Victorian Pride Centre is in the final stages of construction and due to open in the coming months.
