Lack of gender diversity continues to plague the technology industry. Women are vastly underrepresented and under-promoted in technology roles, hampering the industry’s effectiveness. Young women do not consider security a viable career path when they do not see themselves represented in leadership and mentoring roles. In fact, because of these gaps, qualified women are often left out of training, mentoring, and speaking opportunities, hampering their professional growth. This issue is further pronounced in the field of information security, where diverse and creative talent is needed the most.
In order to change the course of this industry’s hiring practices and provide a bright future for anyone who wishes to accept the challenge, we need to come together in a massive way. The only way to address the situation is by concentrated mentoring, training, and recruitment of qualified women. To address that we are inviting meetups, nonprofits, and commercial businesses alike to show technology communities that together we can make a difference. For one day, we can stand united and help change direction not only for the future of the technology industry and for the potential future careers women in technology at each DoS event.
