Launching the MotherBoard Charter

Since launching MotherBoard, a community and event series that has been created to drive positive change throughout the UK technology and data sectors, we’ve had numerous conversations with mums working in Tech and Data as well as businesses that want to get involved. We believe that driving real change will require businesses to be accountable and do much more than talk and have good intentions. So today, we would like to introduce the MotherBoard Charter.

< The MotherBoard Charter objectives >

  • Improve gender balance within technology and data teams throughout the UK.
  • Champion part-time and flexible working across all levels of seniority, enabling the advancement of women’s careers in technology and data-led roles.
  • Increase the % of working mothers holding leadership or board level positions.
  • Close the gender pay gap.
  • Educate organisations on how they can support mothers throughout their careers.
  • Improve maternity and return to work policies.

Business signatories of the MotherBoard Charter commit to a number of pledges relevant to their journey. The Charter will hold these businesses accountable for reporting progress on these pledges annually. This data will help to form our Annual Impact Report which is set to inform our community of the strides we have collectively taken to meet our goals.

By signing up as a signatory, businesses will clearly demonstrate their commitment to improving gender equality and inclusivity for all mums working within the technology and data sectors.
