We see and unlock the inherent capability that exists in those who may not see that for themselves, uncovering their strengths, developing their skills and confidence in readiness for a compelling career in technology.
Our engineering cohorts in the Digital Futures Academy are diverse and our latest statistics show that 51% of our most recent cohorts identify as female and 75% come from an ethnic minority background.
Our application and assessment processes are free from bias and we give everyone with the right to work in the UK the opportunity to go through to the assessment stage and we don’t apply any filter based on information given on CVs. We use our assessment scores to select people for interview at which stage each individual is given the opportunity to meet with someone from the Digital Futures team and an alumni from the Academy.
We are proud to be a member of the Tech Talent Charter, an initiative that is working to bring together industries and organisations to drive greater inclusion and diversity in technology roles. We are also partnered with other industry groups aligned to our mission, including Girl Code and Coding Black Females, and we were nominated to the Girl Code power list for 2022.
