What we ask from you

To join us and become a TTC Signatory, organisations need to secure internal sign-off and commit to four things

People

Select a Senior Signatory with responsibility for the Charter commitments, and provide a named Principal, Data and PR contact.

  1. Senior Signatory - the senior TTC representative for your organisation and the person who is leading on the commitments your company made when signing up as a Signatory. 
  2. Principal Contact - the person responsible for liaising with the TTC directly and included in all our communications with your organisation.
  3. Data Contact - the person who completes your company's data submission annually (usually in September/October), which feeds into our Diversity in Tech report. For more information on our annual data submission requirement please see our data collection webpage.
  4. PR Contact - the person responsible for liaising with the TTC in relation to press opportunities, logos, quotes, social media etc.

Plan

Tech employer
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 examples of what other organisations are doing in our Open Playbook of best practice to help with this).

Consultants, Recruiters and other partners
Develop a plan to work with employers/clients and underrepresented groups to improve their diversity and inclusion in tech and provide support 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 autumn, contribute employment diversity data (which will be anonymised and aggregated) for publication in our annual Diversity in Tech report. Before signing up to the Charter, we request that you ensure your organisation understand what our mandatory reporting requirement is and have reviewed the latest questions which your organisation will be required to respond to annually. You will find this information on our data collection page.

If your organisation would benefit from tips about how to gather workforce inclusion and diversity data, join one of our data Q&A sessions.

Join over 700 organisations and become a Signatory of Tech Talent Charter

If you're happy with these commitments, signing up to TTC only takes 2 simple steps!

What our Signatories are saying

"I am delighted that the Bank of England is now a proud signatory of Tech Talent Charter. We are committing ourselves to action by joining this collective effort and pledging to collaborate and share best practices with others, progress our plan to improve inclusion and share diversity data for collective intelligence. I strongly believe our commitment advances the Bank’s desire for meaningful change, continuing to hold ourselves accountable both to our staff and externally to our peers."
"eSynergy Solutions are proud signatories of the Tech Talent Charter and are honoured to be part of a community dedicated to taking positive and measurable action to improve the gender balance within the tech industry. 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. Our diversity and inclusion strategy is data-driven and evidence-based which means that is incredibly useful to be able to benchmark our progress using the TTC’s Diversity in Tech Report. 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."
"We are very proud to be a signatory - OVO is determined to hire and nurture a diverse and inclusive movement of world changers. We're solving humankind's greatest challenge and we need all of humankind here to help us. We look forward to learning from and networking with the TTC community."
"Obtaining a balanced workplace, where everyone is comfortable contributing their maximum potential, is key to achieving great business results and is motivational to all involved. As a technology function we are working hard to make sure that we achieve this through our recruiting and development of our talent. Through the Tech Talent Charter, I am looking forward to help drive this in any way I can."
"We are really pleased that our ICT Provider Publica Group Ltd along with Cheltenham Borough Council have signed up to the charter. We have a shared commitment to greater inclusion and diversity in technology roles."
