“Last June, SIA and ASIS partnered for the inaugural LeadHER conference in Nashville. Hundreds of women and men united to promote, recruit and cultivate women’s leadership in the security industry, making for palpable energy. The speakers and topics provided actionable recommendations that attendees could immediately put into play professionally and personally,” said Alice DiSanto, chair of the SIA Women in Security Forum. “Now is the time to become part of the much-anticipated year No. 2 of Security LeadHER in Phoenix. Register now to attend. Throw your name into consideration to speak. Together, I am confident we will curate programming to transform your thinking about women in security.”
“As we again gather at this transformative security conference, we celebrate the spirit of progress, connection and empowerment that defines the incredible women shaping the future of our industry,” said Mary Gamble, CPP, chair of the ASIS Women in Security Community. “This event is more than a conference; it is a powerful testament to the resilience, ambition, expertise and collaborative spirit of women in security. Together, we advance, connect and empower, forging a path towards a more supportive and inclusive future for us all.”
