We are continuing our commitment to a more inclusive charity sector, by signing the Tech Talent Charter alongside Charity Digital IT Leaders.
Today, as a sign of their commitment to making the Charity sector more diverse and inclusive, both Charity IT Leaders (CITL) and Charity Digital announced that they had signed the Tech Talent Charter.
The Tech Talent Charter (TTC) is a non-profit organisation focused on addressing inequality in the UK tech sector and driving inclusion and diversity. Their ultimate goal is that the UK tech sector becomes truly inclusive and a reflection of the society which it represents. Tech Talent Charter works at scale, addressing the tech ecosystem as a whole to drive change and focuses strongly on providing tools and sharing best practice to increase inclusion.
“By signing the Tech Talent Charter we are not only demonstrating our commitment to the diversity and inclusion principles it contains, but also forcing ourselves to apply those principles as the key to change is in actions not just words”.
- Laura Dawson - Trustee, Charity IT Leaders
“We have been campaigning for charities to be more inclusive in their digital appointments since last summer and signing up to the Charter is a logical next step for us and shows we are committed to applying the principles ourselves as well as encouraging others to do so”.
- Jonathan Chevallier, Charity Digital CEO
This is another step in our ongoing commitment to creating a more inclusive working environment: both in the charity and tech worlds. We recently announced the winners of our BAME Digital Leaders poll – as voted for by our audience. This long-running campaign was launched to highlight the outstanding digital leadership of BAME individuals within the charity sector.
We’ll be discussing the issue further at our forthcoming BeMoreDigital conference on 5th March 2020, with Tech Talent CEO, Debbie Forster, chairing our diversity panel.
