The LCR Connect Social Value Fund was launched to help drive digital inclusion and support communities across the Liverpool City Region.
Over the next few issues we will highlight more of the stories around how this fund is making a difference to charities and community initiatives across the Liverpool City Region and beyond, and the benefits and opportunities it is creating.
This month we are shining a light on the work that InnovateHer is driving to inspire and nuture the Liverpool City Region’s next generation of girls and young women to follow a STEM career.
As an InspireHer partner, ITS Technology Group (LCR Connect JV partner) has been working with InnovateHer for a couple of years to help promote the wide range of opportunities there are in the digital and technology sector to teachers, parents, and most important, the students.
In June we will be showcasing LCR Connect and the career paths it opens for young people locally; as well as providing positive industry role models to help inspire pupils at a school in Dingle. We want to raise awareness of the technology and telecoms industry and the opportunities within the Liverpool City Region.
InnovateHer is working hard to create a cultural shift across the industry – it is achieving this through sharing best practice and knowledge relating to diversity, equality, and inclusion, so that companies are better equipped. The team at LCR Connect are keen to learn and develop our approach from their valuable insight.
