Commitment to gender equality charter 

Sanctuary Group has signed up to the Tech Talent Charter, a commitment to encourage gender diversity in the technology sector.

The signing sees Sanctuary join a host of national and international businesses and organisations in making a commitment to tackle gender imbalance in technology roles.

Only 17 per cent of technology workers in the UK are female and while women make up 33 per cent of Sanctuary’s technology workforce, by joining the Charter, Sanctuary is committing to support attraction, recruitment and retention practices to increase the diversity of its workplace.
