SecurityWomen and WIIS (Women In International Security) are curating an important discussion around women’s influence in cybersecurity, innovation, and emerging technologies. Critical to shaping global standards of equity and gender empowerment, this event will explore many key challenges faced by the technology sector, and the important roles that women and girls play locally and globally in strengthening technology within our cities and rural communities. Education and mentorship will be examined as a viable means to enhance, expand, and encourage gender parity across the technology space and within the institutions that seek to regulate it here, and to other frontiers.

Session organisers: Barbara Cleary of SecurityWomen, Min Kyriannis of WIIS-Global and Maxinne Leighton, PhD. of WIIS-NY

The Co-Hosting Organisations:

SecurityWomen is an advocacy and research INGO which calls for women’s greater participation in the security sector, particularly peacekeeping. The premise being that a better security for all can be created through better gender balance, and women’s leadership may bring about a reduction in violence and conflict in the world. www.securitywomen.org

Women in International Security (WIIS) is the premier global organization dedicated to advancing women’s (and those underrepresented) leadership and achieving gender equality in international peace and security. WIIS provides professional development training, programming, research, and analysis to close the gender and diversity gap in the international security sector. www.wiisglobal.org

Our organizations both advocate for women (and others less represented) equal inclusion in the technology and security sectors, and all associated industries. Women are underrepresented in these critical fields, and studies on this has shown that the approach in the design and implementation of products tackling cybercrime and misinformation are left lacking without the inclusion of women and others less represented. This starts with basic education and building the foundation necessary so that this industry evolves to become diverse and inclusive.
