Presented by the SIA Women in Security Forum, this panel session will focus on attracting more diverse talent to our industry and keeping them interested in staying. Is our industry aging out? How do we cultivate a new pool of people? How do we reach them and motivate them to stay? Does inclusion drive diversity? Culture and values are paramount today. Young professionals want to work for companies that stand for something, and they want to be included in meaningful projects. Are business leaders adapting to this? Does tenure overshadow talent? Our panel composed of veteran industry leaders and today's rising stars - from the Women in Security Forum and SIA RISE - will discuss the importance of unifying to cultivate our community and create opportunities to work with and champion tomorrow's security leaders. It is our responsibility and can be our legacy. We’ve made real strides with diversity as an industry the past few years and must focus on the equally important topic of inclusion. It’s one thing to invite people to the table, but it’s all for naught if you don’t let them eat. Your voice matters. Please join us and participate in our conversation during this interactive discussion.
