It is a well-known fact that women are highly underrepresented in the tech industry. A significant reason for this can be found in the nature of a company’s culture and its lack of inclusivity. What can be done by a company to engage and attract more women? This event will celebrate the monumental contributions women are making to the cyber sphere, as well as explore ways in which companies can work towards attracting more women to their workforce. Join us to understand how more women can be attracted to cybersecurity careers and to enjoy an opportunity to network with leaders in the field who are profoundly influencing cybersecurity.
