Being a woman is difficult and being a woman of colour only adds more barriers to attaining senior positions, especially in the cybersecurity field in which 20% of its labour force are women.
Seidea, in collaboration with Digital Leaders, will host a number of panellists to empower females of BAME backgrounds and debunk the myths around cybersecurity. They aim to do this by creating a platform in which participants can learn and be inspired by women who have against all odds accomplished great career goals within the cybersecurity field.
Attend this event to learn from BAME women in Cybersecurity who have broken these barriers to achieve great career goals.
