Don’t let a crisis go to waste
Smart leaders are currently looking very frankly at their future strategies and considering where their organisation is going to be in the new norm. The priority for leaders is identifying how innovation can spark new growth opportunities. Research supports that diverse companies are better able to win top talent, orient themselves well with their customers and improve decision making.

Crisis generates a lot of energy
As a non-profit association we represent a diverse and talented tech workforce, we have witnessed how this workforce has excelled during the Covid-19 crisis by helping organisations to think differently and drive survive and thrive initiatives. It is our role to ensure that leaders like you are aware of the ‘rocket fuel of innovation’ that a diverse tech workforce can bring to all types of organisations in the current climate.
