To become a Tech Talent Charter Signatory, companies must secure internal sign-off and commit to 4 things:
- PEOPLE: Have a Senior Signatory with responsibility for the Charter commitments
- PLAN (EMPLOYERS OF TECH): Have a plan to improve inclusion; including adopting inclusive recruitment and promotion processes and practices to support the development and retention of a diverse workforce (you'll find loads of examples of what other organisations are doing in our Open Playbook of Best Practice to help with this); OR
PLAN (CONSULTANTS, RECRUITERS & OTHER PARTNERS): Developing a plan to work with employers/clients and underrepresented groups to improve their inclusion and diversity in tech; supporting them to adopt inclusive recruitment and promotion processes and practices
- PRACTICE: Collaborate with other Signatory organisations and the TTC to share what has worked and what has not worked for your company to drive best practices
- DATA: Every September, contribute employment diversity data (anonymised and aggregated) for publication in our annual Diversity in Tech report. Please read further info about this mandatory reporting requirement.
Once a company can commit to these, they are ready to Sign-up
