A 2020 survey of more than 50 organisations across the progressive movement about technology by the Progressive Tech Network Australia.
The State of Progressive Tech report has the results from a survey of more than 50 organisations across the progressive movement movement by the Progressive Tech Network Australia. The survey revealed what tech tools progressive organisations are using, what the sector is struggling with and what upcoming priorities are.
In summary –
- The progressive sector wants better tech, but a number of factors are getting in the way. Smaller organisations are struggling with lack of capacity and budget, while for bigger organisations the number one roadblock is the lack of internal tech expertise
- Long-term movement-wide priorities include improving accessibility of progressive tech and collaborating on building better shared tools -but very few organisations are currently prioritising these needs in their short-term work
- 80.5% of organisations said that they’d be willing to share their skills and technology with other progressive organisations

It’s hard enough to win progressive change. It’s harder when our tech doesn’t work for us, and when we’re trying to solve our common challenges in isolation. It doesn’t have to be this way.
The Progressive Tech Network is a growing collective of progressive organisations from across our movements teaming up on tech – including unions, not for profits, enviro groups, and community organisations.
ProgTech is in its founding stages – and so focussing on learning about our shared needs, and the key interventions we can make through collaboration. Network members will have access to a library of shared tools, resources and code; training and mentorship programs; and a networked community who work together on solutions to shared challenges.
