Egress signs Tech Talent Charter
London - November 2017 - Egress Software Technologies is delighted to announce its latest efforts in supporting workplace diversification and inclusion within the technology industry by becoming a signatory on the Tech Talent Charter (TTC).
The TTC is a commitment by organisations to a set of undertakings that aim to deliver greater diversity in the tech workforce of the UK, one that better reflects the make-up of the population. In particular, the TTC aims to help increased numbers of women to undertake jobs in technology, as well as supporting girls and young women still in education to examine a future in STEM. As a signatory of the charter, Egress has made pledges in relation to its approach to recruitment and retention of tech talent.
Talking about the charter, TTC CEO Debbie Forster said: “It’s vital for the industry to come together as a whole to do more to show females that a career in technology is incredibly rewarding, to increase the number of females working within the industry, to attract people who are considering a career change, and to encourage younger generations to consider these careers from the word go. One single company can’t do it alone, which is why we’re asking organisations to pledge their support for the Tech Talent Charter and join us on our exciting journey."
Speaking on behalf of Egress, HR Director Rich Mortimer stated: "Egress is delighted to be a signatory of the TTC. As a company and as individuals, Egress wholeheartedly supports inclusion in the workplace and celebrates the resources and innovation that a diverse workforce can bring. While this has always been our ethos, it is fantastic to be able to formally celebrate this as a signatory of the TTC and to work with them so that Egress can remain at the forefront of workplace diversity."
