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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
