ISLE OF MAN LOVE TECH


Love Tech: Inspire – Empower - Include


Love Tech Isle of Man is a collective of leaders across a multitude of sectors all brought together under the shared mission – to inspire and empower girls and young women in the Isle of Man to explore career opportunities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) through a programme of local events, workshops, educational support and mentorship.


Love Tech was launched by Claire Milne of Appleby, Roberta Castle of Continent 8 Technologies and Deb Byron of Hansard in late 2017. As women who have spent their careers working within and supporting the technology sector; these driven individuals were determined to increase the number of women choosing STEM careers.


Love Tech’s goal is for the island’s community to become more engaged and informed about STEM education and the career paths available to young girls and women.


“I'm regularly the only female in the room at many customer technical meetings,” Roberta Castle, Chief Revenue Officer at Continent 8 Technologies, tells G3. “My daughter is nine years old, and I want her to have better opportunities than there were for my

generation. Studying ICT at GCSE level, I was one of four girls in a class of 26.


“As well as a lack of opportunities, there is a misunderstanding in terms of the opportunities and roles that are available. In the UK labour market, only 22 per cent of professionals in core STEM occupations are women with 89 per cent of STEM businesses struggling to hire staff with the required skills. Tere is a current shortfall of over 173,000 workers – an average of 10 unfulfilled roles per business, costing STEM businesses £1.5bn a year.


“During my time at Continent 8 and through my involvement in Love Tech, I have noticed the amount of effort made by women in STEM related careers to get other women into the industry,” Roberta explains. “Te #WeAllWantToPlay initiative championed by


Micky Swindale at KPMG, which promotes diversity in the gambling and betting sector, is a great example of this and Micky has been an inspiration to me over the last 10 years.


“I wouldn't say that in any point in my career I have found it really challenging or come across a situation whereby I've been excluded for being female however I am conscious that on many occasions I am the only female voice and views. At Continent 8, I’m the only female on the board and I'm a firm believer this brings a real change in the agenda and interactions at times.


“Continent 8 continue to make a concerted effort to address the concern of gender imbalance and we now have an amazing team of strong females contributing to our success, from technical engineers, compliance, project managers and account management staff.
