Each track provides an abundance of resources including access to tools, creating connections with peers and industry professionals, guidance on how to bring diversity into an organization and tips on how to create an inclusive workforce.
“We’re so proud to see the growth of this conference from our first event in 2017,” said Brenley Brotman, Chair of the Lookout Foundation. “Since that inaugural event, Day of Shecurity conferences have drawn hundreds of speakers and thousands of attendees from more than 50 countries. We’re excited to continue to expand the series to reach even more participants and contribute to a better environment for women in the industry overall.”
Presented by Secure Diversity and The Lookout Foundation, Day of Shecurity is a free-to-attend interactive conference that launched in 2017 at the Lookout headquarters in San Francisco for women in technology interested in cybersecurity. Day of Shecurity expanded to Boston and Toronto in 2019, and has now hosted multiple virtual conferences. The event is an effort by Secure Diversity, Lookout and the Lookout Foundation and various sponsoring organizations that believe diversity and inclusion matter in cybersecurity.
