On monday we went to the Bristol Equality Charter launch event. Rather than describe it in detail you can read the BBC overview. The initiative has come from Councillor Asher Craig who presented on it with great passion. We loved it and were more than happy to be one of the underlying signatories.
One of the points that Marvin mentioned in his talk really resonated with us. He said that whenever people talk Diversity there seems to be competition with people saying “what about” BAME/Women/Age/Disabled/LGBT?
We believe we are inclusive of all as a group and do not segregate members. To us everyone is equal and we are simply trying to push tech into being more inclusive. We happily work with other organisations to support them but we are simply concentrating on our area of knowledge.
For those wanting more information here’s the charter Bristol Equality Charter and you are free to sign it Declaration Form and send it to email@example.com if you want to be part of it .. which we can’t see that anybody reading our posts wouldn’t want to be.
