The Security Industry Association (SIA) has revealed the inaugural honouree list for the SIA Women in Security Forum Power 100. New in 2022, this initiative presented by the SIA Women in Security Forum honours 100 women in the security industry each year who are role models for actively advancing diversity, inclusion, innovation and leadership in the community.
The 2022 Power 100 honourees are:
“The SIA Women in Security Forum is thrilled to present the women of the 2022 Power 100 – an accomplished, impactful group who are modelling leadership, inspiring others and shaping and transforming the security industry,” said SIA Women in Security Forum Chair, Kasia Hanson. “We applaud the 2022 honourees for their meaningful contributions to the industry and the larger community and look forward to celebrating their achievements at ISC West.”
On 25 March 25 at ISC West 2022, the SIA Women in Security Forum will host a networking breakfast and Power 100 celebration recognising this year’s Power 100 honourees. At this free event sponsored by dormakaba, attendees will connect with other leaders and champions for diversity and help SIA recognise and celebrate the 2022 honourees of the Power 100 program. After the breakfast, attendees are encouraged to stay for the SIA Women in Security Forum keynote with guest speaker Jenny Radcliffe, a social engineer and “people hacker.” Learn more and register to attend here.
The Power 100 announcement comes on 8 March, International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and presenting a call to action for accelerating women’s equality. SIA supports International Women’s Day and launched the SIA Women in Security Forum on this day in 2018. This year, SIA will celebrate International Women’s Day and its 2022 theme by encouraging the Power 100 honourees, the Women in Security Forum community and the larger security industry to work to forge women’s equality and #BreakTheBias.
“The SIA Women in Security Forum Power 100 list inspires the global security industry. The inaugural class of Power 100 honourees are true leaders and trailblazers in the security industry and are making a difference in diversity, equity and inclusion,” said SIA CEO, Don Erickson. “On International Women’s Day, we thank these inspiring women for their outstanding achievements and the actions they take every day for equality without any expectation of recognition.”
