Amicis group are pleased to announce that they have become a signatory for  The Tech Talent Charter.

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 practically and uniquely. The TTC’s goal is that the UK tech sector becomes truly inclusive and reflects the society it represents. There are now over 650 UK employers of tech involved with the TTC and working together to drive change.

Signatories of the TTC make a number of pledges in relation to their approach to the recruitment, promotion, and retention of a diverse workforce. Although it is very much an employer-led initiative, the TTC is supported by the UK Government’s Digital Strategy.

Statistics

  • 19% of the UK working population has a disability yet only 9% of IT specialists in the UK have a disability.
  • Currently, just 16% of UK IT professionals are female and only one in ten females are currently taking A-Level computer studies.

Amicis Group Director and Executive Board member, Carly Barnes-Short have said: “Diversity & Inclusion is hugely important at Amicis Group. We take great pride in the fact we have signed up for the charter. A key focus of Amicis Group will be helping to bring greater diversity into the digital sector via our training company. The benefits of a diverse workforce are clear and well-researched. Joining the Tech Charter is a great opportunity to align Amicis Group with other like-minded organisations aiming to deliver greater inclusion and diversity in the tech workforce of the UK, one that better reflects the make-up of society.”

TTC CEO Debbie Forster said, “The importance of greater inclusion and diversity in tech is, thankfully, no longer up for debate. Sectors and organisations now need to work together to shift the dial – and this will happen a lot quicker if we pool our successes, failures, and ideas and learn from them to bring about real structural change. In our inaugural report, we stressed the importance of collaboration. One single company can’t do it alone, which is why we’re asking organisations to sign up for the Tech Talent Charter and join the movement.  Companies can also access our TTC Toolkit, including our Open Playbook and our Diversity in Tech Report designed to help organisations improve their inclusion and diversity.”
