Students from the Studio, Liverpool’s creative and digital school, recently visited Liverpool Football Club (LFC) to talk all things tech.
The group of Year 10 students from the Studio, and neighbouring Liverpool Life Sciences UTC, enjoyed a welcome from the club’s CEO Peter Moore.
The students listened to lightning talks and Q&A sessions from Amazon Web Services’ Leanne Jagger and LFC staff, covering technology and transformation and human resources.
The programme is designed to equip girls between 12 to 16 with the self-belief, confidence and skills to pursue a career in technology, working with companies to create inclusive workplaces.
Simon Thornton, diversity and inclusion senior manager at LFC, said: “I hope the girls found the visit both informative and inspirational, whilst also giving them the confidence to pursue a career in the tech industry should they wish to do so.
“As a club we are dedicated to promoting best practice in the workplace, including supporting inclusivity and gender diversity”.
