The Tech Talent Charter (TTC) is a government-supported, industry-led membership group that brings together 700+ Signatory organisations and equips them with the networks and resources to drive their diversity and inclusion efforts.
Our broad base of Signatories includes companies and industries of all sizes, non-profit organisations, charities, leading UK educators, and government departments.
The TTC was created in 2015 to address the UK’s tech talent shortage and diversity problem through collective action.
Our goal is for the UK tech ecosystem to be a diverse and inclusive community where people from all backgrounds are welcomed and valued for their contributions.
We provide concrete measurement and insights into diversity in the tech ecosystem and actionable ways forward by gathering, curating, and distributing innovative practices, techniques, and ideas.
Membership is free due to the generosity of our Principal Partners and our work builds upon contributions from our Signatories.
We are focused on action and measurable insights, so we require TTC Signatories to make a number of commitments. This includes providing a senior-level sponsor, having a plan in place to improve inclusion, collaborating with our membership, and submitting annual diversity data.
The TTC was created because solving the diversity problem in tech requires a collective effort across organisations, industries, and sectors.
There is a strong business case for diversity. A recent report from McKinsey found that the relationship between diversity on executive teams and the likelihood of financial outperformance strengthening over time. CWJobs found that companies that take a proactive approach to DE&I are more likely to perform better, have higher profitability, make better decisions, and have a larger talent pool.
Our mission is to connect the dots by:
facilitating collaboration across organisations and sectors
curating insights in our Open Playbook to support companies in improving their D&I strategies across the entire talent pipeline
managing a unique D&I Directory to help members connect
producing annual benchmarking data that helps Signatories to measure the diversity profile of their workforce and track progress
spotlighting the work of Signatories to improve their employer brand
