Mission

To promote inclusion across London’s technology sector and encourage companies to reflect in their workforces the diversity of the capital’s population.

Campaign

Seven Hills worked with Tech London Advocates to identify those measures that could tackle the diversity challenge and contribute to the development of an inclusive and accessible tech industry.

We authored Diversity in Tech: A Manifesto for London, a thought-leadership report that analysed the diversity landscape of the tech sector, showcased the views of its community and made recommendations to its firms.

We gathered approximately 700 members of the London tech industry at the Here East Technology Innovation Centre to launch a conversation about inclusivity in London’s tech sector.

High profile speakers including lastminute.com founder and Twitter board member Martha Lane Fox CBE and Rajesh Agrawal, the Deputy Mayor of London. They were joined by industry experts, business leaders and the media to explore how diversity could fill jobs, unlock creativity and fuel growth.

Momentum

The campaign gained extensive traction in a wide-range of online and print coverage, including The Guardian, City AM, Fortune and Tech City News. Tech London Advocates founder Russ Shaw appeared on Sky News and London Live to discuss diversity in the tech industry.

Diversity in Tech enjoyed a media circulation of up to 360 million people, almost 30,000 impressions on Twitter and reached 4.13 million users to become the top trending topic in the UK.
