*UKHotViewsExtra* Tech Talent Charter improving gender diversity in tech

TTC19Yesterday saw the launch of the Tech Talent Charter’s inaugural report on gender diversity in tech atop the iconic Gherkin building in London. TechMarketView is proud to be one of the nearly 300 organisations large and small that have signed up to the Tech Talent Charter in its first year, undertaking to drive greater gender diversity in tech roles. 

The Tech Talent Charter benchmarking analysis shows that signatories to the charter are more gender diverse than average with 26% of tech roles held by females, compared to the reported UK average of 19%. Interestingly, smaller businesses lead the way with micro businesses at 53% women, SMEs averaging 20-23% and larger companies at 19%.

In other words, as Tech Talent Charter CEO Debbie Forster MBE said yesterday, “there is no reason to think that a company is too small to think about diversity”. Indeed, genuine flexible working and a supportive culture have a strong role to play in making the tech workplace more appealing to women, and this is perhaps easier to achieve in smaller or newer businesses (including TechMarketView of course!). Larger organisations are making huge strides too though and it was great to hear practical examples yesterday from a mix of businesses about what they’ve done to improve recruitment, retention, returning and reskilling of women in tech roles.
