Telstra was honored for its ongoing advancements in subsea network infrastructure, as well as its commitment to diversity and inclusion, at this year’s Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC’22).

The global telecommunications and technology company took home two prestigious awards at the globally recognized industry event: the Outstanding Submarine Company award, and the Outstanding Diversity and Inclusion Champion award.

Oliver Camplin-Warner, CEO of Telstra International, said, “This Outstanding Submarine award is a true testament to the dedication and hard work of our teams across the globe. We’re committed to providing long-term value in Asia-Pacific and around the world for decades to come, building our capability to adjust and respond with agility to whatever lies ahead. This is a responsibility we don’t take lightly especially at a time when it's never been more important to help keep the world connected.”

The D&I Champion award recognized Telstra’s efforts to consistently foster a supportive and fully inclusive work environment for all employees, with a focus on empowerment, career development, innovative recruiting and workplace culture.

Camplin-Warner added, “Telstra believes that a commitment to D&I is a commitment to the success of our entire organization. We place as much emphasis on our people and our culture as we do on our customer-focused deliverables, because D&I is everyone's business.”
