Love Tech was launched by Claire Milne of Appleby and Roberta Castle of Continent8. Both ladies have worked for years in and alongside the technology sector and were determined to increase the number of women choosing technology careers. They dreamed of a world in which women and men have truly equal opportunities, representation and recognition in STEM careers and academia.
Claire and Roberta gathered a group of Isle of Man-based female leaders and technologists to realise this vision, and Love Tech was born.
There are currently 15 women in the organising committee, with a growing number of volunteers.
Lovetech is not a charity and is not registered as such, we do not accept public donations or have a facility to do so on our website. Our efforts for educational support on the Isle of Man are not for formal charitable purposes.
