The Lead Agency will host the next Liverpool Girl Geeks Women <3 tech meet-up.
On Monday 12 June, we’ll welcome people involved in technology to our headquarters in Liverpool to examine company culture and discuss the impact of ‘bro culture’ on diversity.
Diversity is a vital component of any successful culture, not least of all in industries that pride themselves on innovation and connecting with people. This session will provide a great opportunity to hear from a variety of technology employers that value culture.
Liverpool Girl Geeks has become one of the city’s most talked about organisations. Through its series of workshops and meet-ups, the team has been working with young people and employers to decrease the gender imbalance within the tech industry.
We’re proud to be lending our support to their mission and helping bring the topic of culture up for discussion. We’ll join a panel that will seek to identify what organisations can do better to make their working environments more inclusive and enjoyable for all.
Young people in tech
We attended Liverpool Girl Geek’s most recent meet-up last night at the Baltic Triangle. Hosted by Agent Academy, the session featured a panel of young people who are embarking on careers in technology and related industries.
Topics discussed by the panel included a lack of awareness about the types of roles that exist; the need for the improvement in the education system to close the skills gap; and a desire for careers that offer variety and fresh challenges.
The June meet-up will provide an opportunity to discuss these factors and more in the context of company culture.
