Year 8 Cyber Girls First Event

A group of Year 8 girls were delighted to take part in the virtual Cyber Girls First careers event.

Women make up fewer than one in six of the digital work force in Lancashire. Inspiring young women and widening their recruitment talent pool is a priority for all the employers involved and the Lancashire Digital Skills Partnership, part of the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership, who played a key role in making this event happen.

The group enjoyed it immensely, becoming instantly engaged.

“Cyber Girls First plays an important role in trying to improve gender diversity in cyber security and encouraging uptake in computer science amongst girls.”

“Ensuring a diverse talent pipeline is vital in keeping the UK the safest place to live and work online, and Cyber Girls First plays a role in developing the next generation of cyber experts.”
