About the ita

The Inclusive Tech Alliance (ITA) was launched at the House of Commons in November 2018. ITA is a membership body focused on supporting efforts to improve diversity within the UK Tech sector. It is a collaboration with the Financial Times, who produced a special report into ethnic diversity in tech on the same day. Our membership offer for 2019 is available upon request.

As part of the launch, we released a separate report highlighting deep inequalities within the tech sector. The research featured in the Guardian, City AM, iNews, Independent, Mirror and other media outlets. It showed that only 12.6% of board members in the country’s largest tech firms were women.
