Title: Bridging the Gender Gap


In the coming years, the security industry will face a significant skill gap as current professionals retire. As a result, the industry must bridge the gender gap in traditionally male-oriented leadership roles. Hear from female leaders from all parts of the industry--manufacturer, integrator, and end user--discuss the growing need for gender diversity in security. Discuss the challenges these leaders faced in their career and how they overcame them. Take a look at the expected composition of the future security workforce and offer advice for both female professionals looking ahead at their own journey and hiring managers looking to empower the next group of industry leaders. NOTE: This session is closed to press.
