The South East Local Enterprise Partnership were delighted to become a signatory to the Tech Talent Charter in 2020 and, in doing so, to evidence our commitment to improving the diversity of our region’s Tech/Digital, and wider, workforce.
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. The ultimate goal: that the UK tech sector becomes truly inclusive and a reflection of the society which it represents. TTC work at scale, addressing the tech ecosystem as a whole to drive change. They focus on the how, not just the why of inclusion and bring communities together and support the underrepresented.
Signatories of the charter make a number of pledges in relation to their approach to recruitment and retention. Although it is very much an employer-led initiative, the TTC is supported by the UK Government’s Digital Strategy.
Take a look here at more information about the Tech Talent Charter, and what it means to be a signatory. We would like to encourage digital and tech employers across Essex, Kent and East Sussex to find out more about supporting the TTC, and using their tools and resources to help make positive changes to the make-up of their workforce in the future. The South East Digital Skills Partnership’s lead for Diversity and Inclusion is Kit Ayweyevu, CEO at Mindweaver, and Kit is keen to work with employers in the region that want to make a real difference in this arena.
