Empowering Diversity in Tech: Exploring the Tech Talent Charter

The Tech Talent Charter is a non-profit organization dedicated to driving diversity and inclusion in the UK tech sector. It was founded in 2015 with a simple but powerful mission: to ensure that the UK tech workforce reflects the diverse nature of the population by tackling the underrepresentation of women, ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+ individuals, and disabled people in tech roles.

Membership is free due to the generosity of the Principal Partners and their work builds upon the contributions of the Signatories.
