Bridging Technology and Culture: KJR’s Engagement at the Kinaway Deadly Connections Event


KJR VIC Senior Consultant Archana Menon, Renard Vardy, and Consultant Samta attended the Kinaway Chamber of Commerce’s Deadly Connections event on June 27th. This event provided a unique opportunity for our team to share the impact of KJR’s work in making a positive difference in the Indigenous community.

As an Australian software quality engineering and AI consultancy, KJR helps solve complex IT challenges by delivering software testing and AI implementation services. By sharing our story and showcasing our capabilities, we were able to connect with like-minded individuals who share our passion for using technology to create positive change.

Our senior consultants Archana and Renard reflected on the night’s event: 

Renard noted it was 

an opportunity to share how KJR is making a tangible difference in our Indigenous communities through the use of vision AI to detect and preserve Indigenous rock art, locate turtle nets, and assess ocean debris in the Torres Strait Islands. This innovative technology is helping to safeguard cultural heritage, promote sustainable practices, and protect vital ecosystems. It was fascinating to engage one-on-one with other like-minded companies. We learned about their initiatives including Indigenous job placements, building ranger outposts, and Indigenous printing services.

Archana felt 

a profound sense of empowerment and pride as we discussed the exceptional testing services and AI innovations we offer. Highlighting KJR’s foundational pillars—Human, Champion, Truth Teller, and Explorer—we conveyed the essence of our company’s culture. The response from attendees was overwhelmingly positive, reflecting an appreciation for our genuine enthusiasm and gratitude towards being a part of KJR. It’s clear that our actions and approach resonate deeply, affirming that it’s not only what we do but also how we do it that sets us apart.

This event was an excellent opportunity to build relationships, exchange ideas, and explore potential collaborations that can drive meaningful outcomes in the community.

At KJR we are very conscious of the impact we have on all aspects of society, including economic, social and environmental and have dedicated our efforts to improving the world through implementation of various community and innovative technology projects.
