Elevating Women In Cyber

Event date

The Council will be joined by inspirational speakers, partners, members, funders, and a collection of special guests as they host another vital event on International Women's Day to workshop how they plan to bridge the skills and gender gap in the cyber world.

The UK Cyber Security Council is inviting you to discuss elevating women in the cyber security profession.

  • Learn about emerging pathways for the new generation of talent
  • Drive the conversation and steer the Council’s future outreach work during our workshops
  • Network with your peers in the sector and make new connections

This event is open to everyone as elevating women in cyber is not just a women’s issue.

When we have diversity within a workforce we have diversity of ideas, innovation, and solutions.

This event will provide an opportunity for professionals, organisations, stakeholders, and partners to collaborate to address the barriers faced by women when looking to enter the field and offer a platform to those already paving the way for the next generation of women in cyber.

You will hear from leading women in cyber who will showcase how they have advanced their careers and you will also learn about the new emerging pathways available to the next generation of talent.

This event celebrates, empowers, and shares stories of those who identify as women within cyber, and they hope to see as many people as possible champion and encourage women in and aspiring to join the cyber security industry.
