Chippenham company Trapeze Group UK has been named a founding member of the new Inclusive Tech Alliance, set up to help improve diversity in the tech sector.

The founder of the alliance, Samuel Kasumu, who is also a member of the Prime Minister's Race Disparity Advisory Board said:

“Technology is increasingly playing an important role in driving our economy and there is a great need to ensure that everyone can fully participate in the jobs and opportunities technology brings. Trapeze and others will be helping to find ways to inspire the next generation, and hopefully help to improve diversity within the sector.”

Clair Clarke, HR director at Trapeze said: ”Diversity and inclusion are about understanding, respecting and appreciating the different perspectives we bring to working together. I would love to see more women having access to information and inspiration to choose a career in technology – and the support to do so."

Trapeze Group, on Mathuen Park, is a supplier of innovative, reliable and scalable technology solutions for the road and rail transport sector.
