NOT FOR PROFIT D&I INITIATIVES

There are literally hundreds of initiatives taking place all over the UK to improve the diversity and inclusion in tech.  The following are not-for-profit organisations that I think are particularly inspiring. 

If there are any initiatives that you think should be added, do get in touch!

 

The Tech Talent Charter is backed by the DCMS and is a commitment by signatory organisations to undertake initiatives to drive great D&I in UK tech. I love the ethos of the TTC and get inspired every time I attend their events, led by Debbie Forster MBE.

The Tech She Can Charter is backed by PwC and aims to tackle the pipeline of talent into tech through partnerships with educational institutions and businesses. The Charter is focused on inspiring young girls and women into tech careers.

Colorintech runs programs to connect people from ethnic minorities to some of the world's leading tech companies. They focus on the whole pipeline from secondary school to starting a startup. 

WISE is a government-backed organisation promoting careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) to girls and young women. They provide insights, training, mentoring, events and partnerships to drive change in UK Tech.

FiftyFiftyPledge is a community of individuals and companies that work together on activities to drive great gender equality in tech. The percentage of VCs with female investors & startups being invested in with female founders is woefully low. FiftyFiftyPledge aims to change this.

Ada's List is a community of 7000+ women (and those that identify as such) that share knowledge via email and events to drive gender diversity in tech.

DRIVING D&I IN EVENTS

Do you want more diversity on stage? Would you love to tell your story but don't have the confidence in public speaking? Want to attract a wider range of people to your next event? These organisations are doing amazing things to make D&I in events so much better!

If there are any initiatives that you think should be added, do get in touch!
