Tech, digital, science and creative production businesses will play a key role in rebuilding our economy and we are determined to make sure local people get a fair share of the opportunities in their area.

Collectively, our job is to make it as easy as possible for our residents to secure good jobs wherever they arise in our neighbourhoods.

Why are we doing this?

Private school icon
More than 33% of tech board members and 31% of senior executives attended private schools, compared to just 8% of the UK as a whole.
Access denied icon
Residents in some of the most deprived wards in London are effectively locked out of opportunities on their doorstep.
Women icon
In the UK, for every £1 of venture capital investment, less than 1p goes to all-female led teams.
People icon
Only 1 in 9 of the senior leaders in tech come from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic background, yet these residents make up over 40% of the population in London.
