Silicon - a key UK tech sector title - quotes findings from mthree's 2023 diversity report as part of a longer roundtable piece on bridging the skills gap.

- 43% of employers think candidates from historically underrepresented groups with the right formal qualifications are scarce
- 44% of employers are more likely to hire from top universities.
