Upcoming TTC events
Joining the TTC sessions are held monthly. They are for people and organisations interested in becoming Signatories and offer a chance to ask questions and chat with our CEO, Debbie Forster MBE.
Maximising the partnership sessions are held monthly. They show organisations how to get the most out of their TTC membership and includes a tour of our resources like the Open Playbook.
Share and learn sessions
These panel events share best practice and thought leadership that can help your organisation develop actionable plans. We also raise awareness around the different lenses of diversity.
Some of our recent resources
Being inclusive of neurodiversity
We've added a new resource to the Open Playbook from our May 2022 hackathon on the topic of "Creating a culture where neurodiverse people can flourish". This resource was developed by Chris McEvoy from Nationwide Building Society, Darrell Bruce from MediaCom, Karen Blanc from Kent, Kim Scofield from Blonde Bad Wolf, Liz Jessop from KPMG, and Nin Kaur from Bacardi.
Supporting inclusive hybrid working
A new addition to our Open Playbook is "Systems and cultures that support inclusive hybrid working". This resource was put together by Sadiya Salim from Accenture, Alex Cole from TIN Ventures, Chris Richards from Kimel Foundation, Dequn Teng from University of Cambridge, Michael Osbourne from UpSkill Digital and Chris Keane from Canda | In-house talent experts.
Signatory spotlight: Leidos
Learn the practical steps TTC Signatory Leidos used to increase the number of employees who disclose their diversity data. Having greater data insights enables organisations to understand which interventions have the greatest return on investment, which areas of the business are doing well when it comes to inclusion, and which areas need a greater focus.

Feedback from past event attendees
I grew in confidence, feeling free of the “but will it work and meet the requirements” doubts that I often carry when working on code-based solutions. The creative aspect of this hackathon intrigued me, and I am really proud that our end product is full of facts but also gives a few highly visual and practical ways to think about difficult conversations. Olwen Davies, ECS
The hackathons have been really beneficial both in terms of learning from others on what can be done to impact EDI&I within my company & also by giving me a feeling of taking action rather than just a talking shop Kunjal Tanna, LT Harper
Rather than re-writing the playbook, being part of the TTC community allows you to access a wide range of resources including their toolkits, playbooks and events to help support you in your own D&I journey. We encourage other organisations to also pledge their commitment to the delivery of greater diversity in the technology and digital industry and take part in events and hackathons to cross share knowledge to work together to create a more diverse and inclusive industry. eSynergy Solutions
You always leave with a golden nugget. (By attending TTC hackathons) you are always enriching your experience even when you think you've got this D&I thing covered. It's absolutely buzzing with energy and participation. Sara Milne, Chief Technology Officer, Lloyds Banking Group
The rewarding factor (of attending TTC hackathons) is that you're contributing to things like the Open Playbook which is really powerful and for me really important. Kunjal Tanna, Cybersecurity recruiter, LT Harper
At D&I events there is usually just a lot of talking. Where all of the TTC events that I have been involved in has offered practical learnings that you can implement straight away. It is worthwhile attending the events and getting involved. This has been the difference between TTC events and others talking about similar topics. Anushka Davies, Head of Talent, Engagement & Diversity, Softcat
I've never really been to a diversity event where everyone in the room comes from a completely different perspective. You can learn from your peers from a similar kind of industry with similar roles, but to be in the same room and have the perspective of an HR person, a founder, an internal recruiter or an agency recruiter and you're all coming at the same problem from a different angle just gives you that deeper level of learning and experience that you wouldn't get outside of a TTC event. Dania Lyons, Spinks
