Bringing together industries and organisations to drive greater inclusion and diversity in technology roles.

Tech Talent Charter_ Looking Back at 2020

 

WHO WE ARE:

The Tech Talent Charter (TTC) is a non-profit organisation leading a movement to address inequality in the UK tech sector and drive inclusion and diversity in a practical and uniquely measurable way.

WHAT WE AIM TO ACHIEVE:

Our ultimate goal: that the UK tech sector becomes a diverse and truly inclusive community where people from all backgrounds are welcomed, listened to and valued for their contributions.

HOW WE DO IT:

We focus on the how, not just the why of inclusion, gathering, curating and distributing innovative techniques and best practise in inclusion and diversity.

We work at scale, addressing the tech ecosystem as a whole to drive change, and supporting organisations to include and maximise participation from historically underrepresented groups.

Signatories of the Charter make a number of commitments. Although it is very much an employer-led initiative, the TTC is supported by the UK Government's Digital Strategy.
