Some of the products created at recent hackathons
In our November 2020 hackathon, a team produced a roadmap sharing what organisations should be do to tackle bias and unacceptable behaviour.
Produced by a team of experts during our May 2020 Hackathon.
In the November 2020 hackathon, one team of experts explored a successful remote working pathway model, including what characteristics are shared by high performing remote teams, as well as checklists for both employers and employees.
Our July 2020 hackathon was all about how organisations can become more inclusive for black employees. The teams produced four new products: How to recruit black employees; Education and allyship; Promoting, developing and retaining black employees; Black employee networks.
In collaboration with our Signatory companies and sponsors, we host regular hackathons with subject matter experts to develop new products on specific topic areas for the Open Playbook. We use working lunches to find out about new strategies and case studies that are then added to the Open Playbook.
What people say
Feedback from TTC Hackathon attendees
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
