What is #ChangeTheFace?
#ChangeTheFace is an industry-wide initiative calling on change makers to join and take action to increase diversity and equality in the sector. The campaign launched in March 2020 and has since built a community of individuals and organisations who can be a force for positive change within the industry.
For the technology sector to reach its full social and economic potential, it needs to more fairly reflect the world in which we operate. As a collection of some of the world’s largest technology companies, we are all too aware of the bias and lack of diversity in the industry today – from the C-suite to entry-level developers. We need to act quickly to rectify this, as the resulting lack of inclusion affects not just employment but the design of the goods and services that the industry creates.
