About us

Who We Are

When it comes to racial equality, we can all do better.

Without bias or discrimination, we create better teams, make better decisions and become better businesses. That’s why the Technology Community for Racial Equality (TC4RE) exists.

As a group of leading UK technology organisations dedicated to building a more diverse and inclusive workforce, our ambition goes beyond simply raising awareness. We’re taking action to rebalance representation in the UK tech industry for the benefit of individuals and the organisations they work for.

Diverse workforces offer new perspectives, enhance creativity, boost productivity and improve public perception. They celebrate differences, empower employees and inspire future generations. By combining the knowledge and best practice of leading technology businesses with the insight and experiences of individuals in the sector, we will learn from each other to become a trusted advisor on racial awareness, education and unconscious bias.

Fostering a culture of allyship and transparency to enable difficult but crucial conversations to flow, we will use best practice tools, resources and support to create an inclusive community in which employees of all ethnicities feel supported and truly belong. We will engage with all parties to define the optimal approach and, in doing so, transform our organisations by increasing and measuring representation.

Changing lives and livelihoods for the better, this level playing field will help employees to reach new heights while enabling organisations to broaden their propositions, extend to new markets, attract and retain exceptional talent and gain recognition as industry leaders for driving change.

Through equality, diversity and inclusion (D&I), TC4RE is dedicated to building a better technology industry today.
