Love Tech was set up by Claire Milne WS of Appleby, Roberta Castle of Continent 8 Technologies and Deb Byron of Hansard International, all of whom have worked in and alongside the technology sector for many years.

Appleby is passionate about supporting local community initiatives and at the heart of the firm’s corporate social responsibility strategy in the Isle of Man is a theme centered on youth, education and sport. The firm has supported Love Tech since its inception and this year has provided the group with £1,000 corporate sponsorship.

Claire Milne WS, Partner at Appleby Isle of Man, commented: “Love Tech is all about inspiring girls of all ages on the Isle of Man, to consider the many career opportunities in STEM through interactive events and mentorship, which fits perfectly with Appleby’s CSR pillars. Love Tech relies on backing from the business community and Appleby are thrilled to be able to support this initiative throughout 2019.”

Angela van den Berg, Chair of Love Tech commented: “UK statistics show that just 24% of university graduates in STEM subjects are women, with just 6% of these women going on to work in the digital sector as an example. We were also startled to find out that the proportion of professionals in core STEM occupations represented by women is only 22%, hence our vision of a world in which men and women have truly equal opportunities, representation and recognition.

“With valued sponsorship from companies such as Appleby, we can continue to run our events programme and ensure we continue to play our part, encouraging more girls from the Isle of Man to follow their dreams and consider alternative careers in STEM.”
