We have long championed the role of women in the workplace, especially in technology companies, and securing this award demonstrates our longstanding commitment to a diverse workforce. It marks the start of a continual process of action and review and provides us with a solid framework to demonstrate progress against our DEI ambitions at Datactics.”

“We are delighted that Datactics has been awarded the Bronze Diversity Mark Accreditation for its commitment to advancing Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace.

About Diversity Mark:
The Diversity Mark was the first accreditation of its kind and was developed with the support of businesses that were committed to building more diverse and inclusive workplaces. The accreditation was officially launched in September 2017. Within 3 years, over 80 progressive companies from all business sectors had signed the Charter and are committed to transforming workplace culture and attitudes for good.
Diversity Mark offers accreditation, expert support, and guidance to organisations that are navigating the Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) landscape. It is the only accreditation where award applications and annual reports are assessed independently by assessors. Their assessment process is highly robust and, as such, is held in high regard as a mark of progress for DEI.
