Diversity seems to be the pressing issue that all employers are looking to address. Despite 49% of the UK workforce being women, only 19% of tech workers are, and it’s estimated that only 1-2% of tech workers are from ethic minority groups (versus the 12.76% in the workforce as a whole).
As recruiters, we see this first hand every day and have been working hard behind the scenes to increase the representation of marginalised groups within tech, and also the pay gap that comes with it.
We’re therefore really pleased to announce that we have launched Diversity in Tech UK, a group to discuss all matters related to diversity in the workplace.
Over the coming months, we will be starting with a series of one to one interview discussing all that relates to Diversity in the workplace but with a particular focus on tech.
