What Is the Women in Security Forum?
The Women in Security Forum is a group for both women and men with the goal of supporting the involvement of women in the security industry.

SIA’s Women in Security Forum works to:

  • Advocate for advancement and build confidence in the workplace
  • Connect women in the industry
  • Develop recruiting efforts for next-generation female professionals and leaders
  • Initiate ongoing dialogue between male and female leaders to enhance mutual understanding
  • Identify platforms that can provide visibility for women
  • Create opportunities for women to work together and be at the forefront of a major initiative

Key forum efforts include the Progress Award, which celebrates individuals who advance opportunities and pave the way to success for women in the security industry; SECURE Perspectives, a monthly column featuring women in the industry in partnership with Security Sales & Integration; and exciting networking events and thought leadership opportunities.
