Every woman has a story that they bring with them wherever they go, and it makes them who they are today. However, that story can be changed if it is not an empowering one. Cybersecurity, being one of many fields that are predominantly male dominated, is one which woman currently are underrepresented and unempowered. The unique perspectives, experiences, skills, mindset, and critical thinking abilities, as well as emotional intelligence that women bring, are not appreciated as much as they should be.
By understanding the psychology of women and cyber, we can bring more diversity in the cyber field. We can also educate, inform, and empower women to not only break through the glass ceiling but to be pioneers and change the landscape of cyber and how we think of it.
The very field of cyber is often miscategorized as a purely technical field. This misconception has driven many women away. In this webinar, we will learn that cyber is an all–encompassing field, one that is broad and inclusive of all abilities, skills, strengths, life paths, and experiences.
In this webinar, you will learn how to be your own advocate in life, health, and in your profession, especially in the cyber field. You will also learn how expansive and encompassing cyber is, the multitude of paths you can take to gain experience and to create your journey to leadership roles within cyber. You will also learn what you can do to empower other women, to not fear fields that may be male dominated currently. Everything has the power to change – so let’s start this change by empowering women to break through the glass ceiling!
