At a recent Women Leading Privacy KnowledgeNet in Los Angeles, California, covered by Robert Kang for The Privacy Advisor, panelists discussed the ways in which they work to encourage other women to get into strong leadership positions. For example, FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Gina Osborn gave one example about inspiring even the youngest generation of future women leaders. Despite her busy schedule protecting public safety, Osborn takes the time to speak with elementary school girls about careers in the FBI. Beth Jones, a cybersecurity engineer and analyst with the Southern California Edison Company, echoed that theme. Like Osborn, Jones makes time to participate in IAPP panels, to help normalize public perceptions about women working in highly technical jobs. At P.S.R. on Friday Jenn Behrens, CIPP/G, CIPP/US, CIPM, FIP, partner at Kimble & Associates; Amanda Bell Smith, CIPP/E, VP of workforce data privacy at Fidelity; Juanita Koilpillai, president of Digital Risk Management Institute and CEO of Waverley Labs, and Chenxi Wang, chief strategy officer at Twistlock, will discuss their experiences in the field as well as how to best navigate and display leadership when working with other organizations through business development. Plus, there will be breakfast if you show up on time.
