Description

I know we said our Tech for Good Liverpool meetups were going to be quarterly…

But we’re back already - we couldn’t resist holding a meetup to celebrate the most exciting day of the year.

Ladies Day isn’t until April, you ask? Don’t worry - it’s better than that. It’s (the eve of) International Women’s Day, and we want to raise a toast to the Liverpool ladies who are changing the game in tech - quite literally.

On our amazing panel we have:

Chelsea Slater (Liverpool Girl Geeks & InnovateHer)

Annie O’Toole (Draw & Code)

Ngunan Adamu (iWoman Academy & BBC Radio Merseyside)

Kate Warriner (Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital NHS Trust, STP & Healthy Liverpool)

Deborah Chapman (Shop Direct)

Robyn Dooley (OH This Way)

While our Liverpool women are some of the best in the business, only 17% of tech jobs are held by women in the UK, who are STILL paid 9% less than their male counterparts. According to the World Economic Forum gender parity will continue to elude us for 217 years. In line with this year’s theme for IWD, we are urging Liverpool to #PressforProgress and continue striving for gender parity. Everyone is welcome regardless of your gender identification so join for us for an evening of food, drink and plenty of discussion.

We are passionate about inclusivity in technology and want to make sure anyone who wants to attend is able to attend. If you require any special assistance please let us know and we will do all we can to accommodate your needs.
