Identify what ethical responsibilities the existing ICT workforce has to support the integration of these technologies into businesses and daily life
Demand for ICT skills and workers is increasing as the disruptive impact of digital technologies spreads across the Australian economy. To position the economy to take full advantage of the opportunities presented by this digital disruption, we must ensure that the Australian workforce is equipped with the ICT skills required for businesses to innovate and grow. While ICT education, such as introducing coding in schools, will facilitate this in the long run, our greatest source of skills right now is the existing workforce. As such, developing the digital skills of both existing ICT workers and the broader Australian workforce is an important factor in ensuring that there is an adequate supply of ICT skills in a growing digital economy.
