Presented by Lynn Dohm, Women in Cybersecurity (WiCyS), Executive Director
Imagine a workforce where inclusive cultures drive nonuniformity, all while lending itself to the powerful diversity of thought. One that challenges the status quo and inspires an environment where all genders, identities, cultures, ethnicities, races, backgrounds, and experiences are entered into a shared space of the cybersecurity workforce. Where the obstacles that existed before are tackled strategically and patiently. And a new reality of a gender-balanced workforce emerges.
For us, at Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS), this new workforce is tomorrow's reality that we work towards building every day. It's more than a mission; it is the core of our existence and the driver of our actions. During this webinar, Lynn will share the story and powers of the WiCyS community, showcasing how far women have come and how much further we have to go in building a bigger table that represents us all. and experiences are entered into a shared space of the cybersecurity workforce. Where the obstacles that existed before are tackled strategically and patiently. And a new reality of a gender-balanced workforce emerges.
