Liverpool Girl Geeks is a project aimed at gathering a community of ladies of all generations in Liverpool engaged with and inspired by Technology, Gaming, Design, Programming and Digital Media.
Created by Chelsea Slater and Rebecca Jones, as part of Chelsea’s final project for her Masters degree in Social Media. Chelsea says “One of the things that made us want to create this group is because we feel that there is a lack of community within women in technology in Liverpool. Manchester and Birmingham each have their own Girl Geeks group so we thought it was about time Liverpool had one too.”
With its strong tech and gaming pedigree the girls recognise that the women of Liverpool are in need of a community like this – offering inspiration, support, guidance and feedback. They hold regular events and courses which involve workshops, demonstrations, industry leading speakers and networking opportunities.
