Diversity in Tech report


We have compiled an annual report tracking diversity in technology across the UK. Our latest report uses data from 649 organisations and the dataset covers 210,245 people working in technical roles in the UK

About Tech Talent Charter (TTC)


TTC is a D&I not-for-profit sponsored by the UK government. Each year we collect D&I data from over 700 UK organisations to provide up to date diversity benchmarks. To help us continue to provide free D&I resources, visit our sign up page and learn how you can become a TTC Signatory at no cost.

Each year the TTC surveys its membership base of Signatories. Signatories elect to be part of this process when they join the TTC. The survey is sent to the designated contacts within the Signatory organisation, chiefly the Data Contact and the Principal Contact. The Signatory submits the data to TTC via a web form. After being processed and analysed, the data is used to create benchmarks, updated annually. The benchmarking tool reflects the data from the most recent survey. 

We ask Signatories to tell us the number of tech role holders at their organisation, disaggregated by gender minority (women and non binary) and gender majority (cis men). We also ask for tech role holders disaggregated by ethnic group.

TTC does not, at any time, receive personal data that falls within GDPR. All data provided to us is already aggregated and anonymised by the Signatory. 

Our data for the calculator comes from 649 Signatory organisations, employing over 210,000 tech employees. It excludes a minority of Signatories who do not have any UK tech employees, and organisations who were unable to report diversity figures to us.

Our data does not include freelancers or contractors; it only includes employees. 

We calculated the gender and ethnic minority percentages for each organisation that gave us data, and then categorised by size, industry and region. We then took the quartiles from this categorised data to give us the benchmarks. 

Gender minority figures were calculated as a percentage of the sample who's gender was known. 

Ethnic minority figures were calculated as a percentage of the sample who's gender was either known, or had a preference not to disclose it. 

The data about your organisation that you enter onto the webpage is not stored by the TTC. However, if you wish to download your results, we will ask you to provide an email address so that this information can be sent to you.

In order to protect the anonymity of our Signatories and their employees, we have aggregated ethnic minority groups into one category. This prevents specific companies and individuals becoming identifiable when the benchmarks are segmented by region, industry or company size. 

TTC operates within all the relevant data legislation such as GDPR. However, beyond this we also have a formal Research and Data partner, a consumer insight platform called Attest, who advise us on our data and research practices. They are accredited by the Market Research Society. They do not have access to any TTC data. They advise us on our research practices and support our work with consumer research. 

TTC are also recognised by the Open Data Institute (ODI) as a Data Steward - a body that manages data for public good - and took part in the ODIs first Data Academy program on responsible data stewardship.

If you are from a TTC Signatory, please contact us directly as we may be able to provide additional insights to your organisation. 

If your organisation is not a Signatory, please consider signing up at no cost to leverage greater support from our resources. 

We use the term "gender minority" in our benchmarks because in the context of tech role holders, women and people who identify with a non-binary gender are minority groups. Even together, these groups are still a minority group. This compares to overall population data where, for example, women account for about half. 

Our data sample for non-binary genders was small and therefore we have combined women and non-binary genders together to ensure that the anonymity of the companies and their employees is protected.
