Title: Three Keys to Being an Influencer as a Woman in Cyber

Abstract:  

In my career, I've had the pleasure of mentoring and sponsoring dozens of women and men in their cybersecurity aspirations.  When I  realized that the number of women had declined from 34% to just 18% of the computing workforce in 30 years, I had to find out why and do something about it. 

Do you find that your ideas don't get heard?  Do you struggle being perceived as "not a team player" or "too aggressive?"  Are you wondering if there is a career path when you don't see many, if any,  at the top who looks like you?  Are you frustrated with work and wondering if it will get better?

There is a saying that diversity is like being invited to the dance, inclusion is like joining the dance, and equity is like knowing all the songs for the dance. I help you know the playlist.

Join us for this interactive working session where you will learn three essential skills that will boost your career, expand your influence, and definitely help you have more fun at work.  Whether you are just getting started, are a seasoned tech pro, or a senior leader you will leave with your 1-2-3 Roadmap to Own Your Career in Tech to guide you in the year ahead.
