  • Time For Change

    Research and evidence show that diverse organisations do better. Diversity is a fundamental requirement for businesses to thrive and meet future demand. It is time for change. Diversity is not just a concern for HR professionals or those in the minority. Everyone has a responsibility to be informed, understand the diversity landscape and to take action.

  • Our Vision

    We have a bold vision of a thriving and diverse technology sector where everyone has equal opportunities. Our mission is to drive change and inspire others to challenge the current status quo so that together we can increase diversity and inclusion and we can all be our best selves. We want the sector to thrive and continue to innovate with a workforce that is representative of the users we serve.

    What do we want?

    • We want a tech sector that is inclusive, openminded, fair and supportive - for everyone.
    • We want organisations to proactively encourage diversity and for everyone in the sector to understand the benefits that a diverse workforce can bring.
    • We want to see an increase in the number of women and ethnic minorities in the sector and for these groups to feel supported and empowered to contribute.
    • We want the technology creators to represent the broad spectrum of technology users today, becoming better equipped to cater for a wide variety of needs.
    • We want a thriving tech sector that continues to innovate by leveraging the different skills and perspectives of a diverse workforce.
    • We want a tech sector that won't be constrained by a limited resource pool, but one that can actively meet the workforce demands of the future tech-enabled digital world.
    • We want a tech sector that supports working parents to have both a fulfilling work and family life. 
    • We want our children to follow their dreams and not be pigeonholed or limited by their gender or race.
    • We want everyone working in tech to be the best they can be.

    What are we doing about it?

    We know our vision is bold. We also know that the only way that we can achieve it is if we work together. We have created The Diversity Canvasto give organisations a common framework to move forward together.

  • About The Diversity Canvas

    Why change?

    The world is waking up to the fact that we have a talent shortfall and a lack of diversity in our businesses. We need to rethink the way we attract, develop and retain talent and widen the net to give more people an opportunity to thrive and contribute. Companies that offer an inclusive environment for a diverse mix of employees stand to innovate, achieve greater financial performance and outperform the competition.

    We need to change the script

    The same actions will results in the same outcomes. Organisations need to take intentional action in order to drive change. This is why www.diversily.com has created The Diversity Canvas. It helps spark the right conversations to build inclusivity into our thinking and provides a common framework to move forward together.

    Stronger together

    Our mission is to drive positive change and The Diversity Canvas is a vehicle to encourage a collective movement of change. It is an open tool that we want as many organisations to benefit from as possible. We encourage businesses to provide feedback so we can continue to evolve the canvas and share the collective experiences. We encourage partners to build the canvas into their offerings such as consultancy, workshops or accelerator programmes. Let's celebrate our successes and move forward, faster together.
