Atlassian Public Policy

At Atlassian, our mission is to unleash the potential of every team. And we live our values in everything that we do, including our public policy work. Through our policy advocacy, we seek to unleash the positive potential of technology and create affirmative change in our communities worldwide.

Issues we care about

Unleashing the positive potential of technology

We are firm believers that the future will be led by innovation and technology. For all of us to share in the benefits of the digital economy, we need policies that encourage innovation and technological advancement. Policies that invest in the future of the technology industry, improve the foundational infrastructure for our technology-driven future, and create a regulatory environment that provides stable and fertile ground for investment and innovation.

Sharing our values

Atlassian is built on its strong values.  And we believe that it is our corporate responsibility to serve as a force for good in society. This means that we are committed to cultivating diversity, belonging and balanced teams, and to taking bold action to combat climate change. In close collaboration with our Sustainability colleagues, we advocate for legal and regulatory measures to advance these important goals.

Protecting our customers and our business

Technology is already an integral part of our daily lives, so it is more important than ever to build trustworthy products. As a matter of public policy, we support measures that recognize the importance of security, privacy and trust in the digital economy. This means that we advocate on behalf of our people, our customers, and communities for strong and globally interoperable legal frameworks that protect these important rights.
