At KJR we get a kick out of supporting our future champions – which made partnering with ANU Australian Football Club for their women’s scholarship program a no-brainer. Delayed until 2021 due to COVID-19 limitations, The KJR ANUAFC Leadership Scholarship will be worth $5,000 per annum for up to 3 years of study at ANU. Scholarship holders will also be provided leadership and career development opportunities, both at the football club, and as a speaker and ambassador for the ANUAFC, ANU and partners. We’re excited to award the first KJR Scholarship in 2021 and watch the recipient experience the benefits and growth it provides.

As a Collective of ICT professionals, we feel it’s important to keep exploring new opportunities as tech continues to grow. The Australian Computer Society (ACS) is the perfect marriage of these values: the largest professional body in Australia representing the ICT sector, hosting events, accredited courses and providing resources for ICT professionals looking to stay informed. As Corporate members we’ve had many opportunities to enhance our growth and challenge ourselves as the industry keeps changing. At KJR we’re very invested in adapting for the future of tech, so partnering with a likeminded organisation like ACS simply makes sense.
Queensland AI Hub launched in May 2020 amid the COVID-19 Crisis. A challenge for sure, but also incredibly timely for a fresh initiative to make an impact on the future of Queensland. KJR has been part of the adventure from the start as a Founding Shareholder and member of AI Consortium – the group of businesses that secured Government funding to set up and run the hub.
The resurgence of the National Basketball League in Australia excites KJR immensely. There’s nothing quite like being so close to the action on a court that you can catch the rebound, which is why we proudly host our clients, partners, peers and families at our hoop-side box for Sydney Kings’ home games. And we enthusiastically support the lads as #WeRuleAsOne
KJR is a fierce supporter of TourXOz and its mission for Black Dog Institute. Every two years, TourXOz brings together a group of dedicated bicycle riders and fundraisers to complete a mad(!) mission. In 2017, KJR’s Andrew Hammond rode the 8-day, 2,500km journey from Perth to Broome. Andrew also completed the Tour in 2015 and with the company of KJR’s founder, Kelvin Ross in 2013.
For the last three expeditions and for 2019, KJR has been overjoyed to sponsor the coveted Yellow Jersey, awarded to at least two riders each day of the tour for their contribution to the team and the cause. A poignant twist on the traditional meaning of the jersey.
KJR couldn’t resist the opportunity to sign-on as a corporate sponsor for the UC Capitals in the Women’s National Basketball League. As a top team in the league, the Capitals have welcomed KJR with the privilege of the KJR Player of the Game award which recognises a player each home-game who performed a major role in the unwavering pursuit to lead the Capitals to success. But it’s more than just a ‘logo’ sponsorship, KJR will be working with the UC Capital’s team to explore synchronicities with the data produced from a basketball game and another KJR supported program, Young Women Leaders in AI. #GOBIG
