Girls in Coding event: TechTalent Charter

Girls in Coding event: TechTalent Charter

Following on from our Girls in Coding event, which was very well attended at the Skills Matter eXchange in London, we're calling on the recruitment industry to join us in forging a TechTalent Charter to help get more women into technology, IT and coding roles.

To ensure females have a role in the development of the coding language of the future, and remain a key element of the future workforce, we need the recruitment industry to join us in pledging to do more in promoting women into roles of technology, IT and coding by supporting our TechTalent Charter to forge a framework of action for the future.

The Girls in Coding event, which marked the start of our Girls In Coding campaign, brought together industry experts to facilitate discussions around what can be done to encourage females to take up coding and how best to help them embrace and enjoy a crucial skill which will enable them to remain at the forefront of the future workforce. The discussions were split into three panel sessions: tackling the issues of getting young girls into coding; upskilling graduates and current professionals; and the challenges of finding tech talent today – with schools, parents, role models, industry, recruiters and society as a whole having an important part to play.

To further promote the campaign, we can has confirm that we are the official recruitment partner of the Festival of Code run by Young Rewired State on 27th July - 2nd August 2015. We are also partnering with Code First: Girls to run a series of three workshops this summer on how to recruit female tech talent.

To find out more information on the TechTalent Charter, or to register your interest and be kept up to date on our activities around this, please email us.
