Diversity & Inclusion Toolkit launched by Tech Nation to help tech founders and their employees create more diverse and inclusive businesses, and provide equal opportunities for all in UK tech

Tech Nation leads the way with the launch of the Diversity & Inclusion Toolkit; a comprehensive guide to address diversity challenges in tech companies and the UK tech sector.

tech nation.Many UK tech companies have taken significant steps in implementing diversity & inclusion strategies, and are now seeing positive results in not only the makeup of their workforce, but in the productivity and success of their companies. With a growing number of UK examples, this toolkit aims to celebrate success already achieved in tackling diversity and inclusion, while providing the resources for others to do the same. 

To achieve maximum impact, diversity and inclusion strategies must be implemented as early as possible in a company’s growth journey, however for founders scaling their businesses, it may seem like a daunting challenge, which is why Tech Nation has created the Diversity & Inclusion Toolkit. 

Offering insights and guidance to help founders scale diverse and inclusive companies, each section contains checklists, links to tools and resources, and case studies highlighting examples of companies who have enacted positive change. Continually updated, it will reflect the changing tech landscape, new D&I initiatives and companies which have already implemented successful D&I frameworks. 

diversity Rowena Knapp, COO at Tech Nation, commented: “When it comes to achieving equality in the UK’s tech sector, we still have a long way to go. Tech companies and their founders need to have a comprehensive toolkit they can turn to to help them address diversity issues head-on. As we look to rebuild a stronger economy and society, equal opportunity and representation within the tech sector has never been more important. 

“This is why I am pleased to launch the Diversity & Inclusion Toolkit today, which we will continue to refine and build on over the months and years to come. Creating a truly diverse and inclusive tech business is an ongoing and iterative process, and the D&I Toolkit is a fantastic place to start.”

The toolkit was created in partnership with The Unmistakables, an award-winning Diversity & Inclusion consultancy, and is supported by talent and training partner Futureproof. Alongside the toolkit, Tech Nation are also partnering with the All In Commitment & Community for diversity & inclusion. 

Nikhil Shah, Co-Founder of Mixcloud and the All In Commitment & Community, added: “As a founder and advisor to startups, I have witnessed first-hand the importance of being an empathetic leader: building inclusive cultures and diverse teams is a social responsibility but also better for business. Now is the time to provide founders with the support they need to achieve this in their own companies. That’s why we're building All In, and we're delighted to be partnering with Tech Nation on their practical toolkit to empower positive change across our industry.”

Fab to see the tech sector leading the way with this fab resource to help build more diverse and inclusive businesses!
