Just under half (46 per cent) of technology companies in London don’t believe that a diverse workforce can help them grow, according to a new report by Tech London Advocates. The independent network of tech experts, leaders and innovators claims that the tech industry is doing a poor job combating the diversity crisis. Yet, it is understood that the tech industry does not represent wider diversity currently seen in the UK’s capital.  Gender also seems to be the problem – out of 40,000 London-based companies, 1,000 (2.5 per cent) employ only males.
