Event Details

Gender diversity in the workplace is crucial. Women are historically and currently under-represented in the security environment, and this can be to the detriment of advances across the profession and overall revenue growth. In 2021, we choose to challenge this status quo as without very targeted efforts to include and advance women within the security profession, the future will look as now….. and then repeat.

The ASIS APAC WIS event presented by ASIS Australia & New Zealand and hosted by the ASIS New South Wales Chapter, is designed to bring focus to increase the representation of women in the security profession, in leadership roles and within professional associations such as ASIS International.

Our panel members have already chosen to challenge past and present situations. Gain access to their insights and proven tools to become a more resilient security professional and challenge the way you mentor and encourage a gender-diverse team to be the best they can.

Join us for an inspiring evening celebrating Women In Security at the iconic Sydney Opera House. Our great panel is made of leaders shaping the security industry. Drinks and canapés will be served throughout the evening.

The inspiring Jenny Muldoon will be welcoming us to this inspiring evening.

Please note that you will be expected to remain seated due to COVID restrictions
