At LS Retail, 36% of employees are women. As we always strive for fairer gender representation, this day is very important to us. This year, LS Retail participated in the event for the third time. The nineteen girls who visited us got the opportunity to meet role models in various IT roles, including developers, tester, scrum master and project managers. These women volunteered to meet the girls, and gladly took time from their busy day to give a fun and friendly introduction to our company and to explain what it means to work in technology. The day was both educational and fun, as the girls were challenged to use their analytical and problem-solving skills in various games. They were also introduced to coding – a great way for these young women to discover their own capabilities, and to learn that tech work can be fun. It was very rewarding to see both the role models and the students actively communicating and enjoying themselves in those activities. Who knows - maybe they will become coworkers in the future! We at LS Retail will continue participating in the Girls in ICT Day, for we believe that greater female participation in technology at all levels benefits not only our workplace, but also the whole ICT sector, and society as a whole. The women within LS Retail look forward to welcoming the girls again, with the hope to plant a seed for their future career choice.
