Groups working towards diversity in IT

Whilst researching some previous work, I ended up collating a list of various groups whose mission it is to help improve diversity in IT – in particular gender diversity. I’ve been sitting on that list for a while now, but have realised it may be a useful resource to some, so here it is.

Note: I compiled the original list in 2015 – some details may have changed. I’m not claiming to have all groups listed — if there is a group missing let me know and I’d be happy to add them. Same deal if I have details wrong.

Note 2: Some of the groups listed have a broader focus than just IT.
