About the Tech Talent Charter
The TTC is a government-supported, industry-led membership group. We bring together 700+ Signatory organisations and equip them with the networks and resources to drive their diversity and inclusion efforts.
Our broad base of Signatories includes companies and industries of all sizes, non-profit organisations, charities, leading UK educators, and government departments.
The TTC is for organisations of all sizes, from tiny start-ups to large multinationals, spanning all industry sectors. If you employ tech talent or are part of the tech ecosystem and are keen to build a diverse and inclusive talent pipeline, then join us. This includes recruiters, consultants, training providers, charity organisations, and others.
Membership is free due to the generosity of our Principal Partners and our work builds upon the contributions from our Signatories. Together we create solutions, take action, and share best practice.
Why the TTC?
With widespread disruption, companies must innovate continuously, creating new markets, experiences, products and services. Companies that do not represent their customer base and do not include diverse perspectives, especially in decision-making seats, will be left behind.
The TTC was created because solving the diversity problem in tech requires a collective effort across organisations, industries, and sectors.
There is a strong business case for diversity. A recent report from McKinsey found that the relationship between diversity on executive teams and the likelihood of financial outperformance strengthening over time. CWJobs found that companies that take a proactive approach to DE&I are more likely to perform better, have higher profitability, make better decisions, and have a larger talent pool.
Our mission is to connect the dots by:
- facilitating collaboration across organisations and sectors
- curating insights in our Open Playbook to support companies in improving their D&I strategies across the entire talent pipeline
- producing annual benchmarking data that helps Signatories to measure the diversity profile of their workforce and track progress
- spotlighting the work of Signatories to improve their employer brand
“While diversity factors alone, like having a diverse leadership team and a gender-balanced workforce, significantly impact the innovation mindset, a culture of equality is the essential multiplier to help your company maximize innovation.”
