Tech Talent Charter: Tackling the female talent pipeline

ttc

Signatories of the Tech Talent Charter met last week to debate practical solutions for the lack of women in technology roles in the UK. Those in attendance included Channel 4, Lloyd’s Bank, Accenture Digital, and the BBC, with the discussion focusing on ways to retrain women and help others return to the profession after time away.

Less than 20% of tech professionals in the UK are female, and while there are programmes in place to encourage more younger women and girls to study science and technology subjects, a multi-pronged approach is critical to fundamentally changing the composition of the workforce.

TTC event LeedsResearch by HP shows that c70% of women surveyed in the UK would be interested in retraining for a job in the tech sector. Meanwhile, we’re hearing that placements for re-training in organisations at the BBC and Sky have been over-subscribed.

The challenge for employers is to create retraining programmes that are both attractive and practical – and therefore effective. More broadly, the culture within their organisations must be inclusive and flexible to ensure women (and men) can juggle important family commitments outside of the workplace.

The Tech Talent Charter is a commitment by organisations to a set of undertakings that aim to deliver greater gender diversity in the UK tech workforce. TechMarketView is among more than 300 signatories. See techtalentcharter.co.uk.
