Women Leading Privacy
Wednesday, April 19, 2 – 3:15 p.m.
Building a Pathway to Board Leadership

The field of privacy has organically developed into an industry where women and men are equally represented. However, even though studies show privacy as an equal playing field, women remain underrepresented in leadership positions such as board membership. In this discussion between two of the top thinkers in leadership development, you'll learn critical skills for taking that bold first step and to building a path towards board leadership, including how to determine what boards may be right for you. It's important to note, too, that these tips and tricks apply to all aspirational members of the privacy industry, and this discussion is applicable to all regardless of gender identity. We hope you can join us for this informative and inspirational conversation.
