Join the Executive Women's Forum (EWF) in celebrating International Women's Day,a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women since 1908. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
As the EWF celebrates our 15th anniversary this year, we are thankful for all the amazing women and men who have helped us sustain and grow!
Over the past 15 years, the Executive Women's Forum has been committed to the important mission of engaging, developing and advancing women leaders in information security, risk management and privacy. Along with our members, Corporate Benefactors, and Sponsors we have worked to improve the representation and advancement of women in our field.
The EWF and its members understand that the under-representation and under-utilization of female talent is both a critical business issue and a hindrance to the development of world class cybersecurity organizations and resilient companies, as well as the overall safety and protection of our country.
The EWF has been committed to advancing women for the past 15 years. Here's what is new for 2017:
