WoSEC - Women of Security

WoSECWoSEC (Women of Security) was started by a lady from Ottawa (Canada) known as Tanya Janca (@shehackspurple) because she saw the wonderful friendships that Cyber Ladies in Israel have, and she thought “I want that too, that’s a fantastic idea”.

Activities differs in every chapter but the global goal is to create a safe and friendly environment for women in the cybersecurity community, with the goal of achieving greater diversity, representation, and equality in this vibrant field.

Our vision: Make an Information Security community that empowers women and values their contributions.

Our Mission: Create a welcoming and inclusive environment that promotes, supports, and develops women in security by facilitating networking, education, and mentorship opportunities.

Today, WoSEC is a community for women to make new friends in Security, so that women not only join our industry, but STAY.

We shine the spotlight on great things that women are doing in InfoSec with our twitter account, with which we strive to create a constant stream of positivity.

  • We “brunch and bitch” (like a stitch and bitch, but with food), so that we can make friends, network, and create mentoring relationships.
  • We hold safe spaces for learning, with women-only workshops or talks. Some chapters provide free tickets to technical workshops for some of our members.
  • We “Crash boy events”; by attending in a group, none of us is ever “the only woman there”.
  • We are trying to create a community for all women who work in (or want to work in) InfoSec, in hopes that they will have more opportunities, more support, and more fun.
  • We don’t have membership fees, all women are welcome, and even if someone is not involved with WoSEC we are happy to share their accomplishment and cheer them on.

WoSEC has resulted in: women starting businesses together, mentoring relationships, job interviews, internships, people being able to recruit from our community, a cheering squad showing up to surprise female speakers, standing up for each other, priceless advice, and friendship.

We can advocate for each other, and we do. We share our power, with each other, so that there is space for more of us.

Code and Stuff

Code and Stuff

We believe that diversity in tech is really important and to balance the scale we are building a collaborative learning community to support more women and non-binary people getting into tech.

Our ambition is to show those who are already in tech, or are interested in learning how to code, that anything is possible - and that with a bit of help and confidence they can realise their potential and enjoy a thriving career in tech.

#BalanceforBetter

Learning

We want women and non-binary people to try coding and perhaps they will find that they have a hidden talent because successful coding is about logic.

Empower

We want to empower women and non-binary people to aspire to a career in tech through mentoring based weekly meetup events, talks, workshops and hackathons.

Community

We want to create a community and link women and non-binary people to those in varying tech roles to provide accessible role models from more technical disciplines.

SheSays UK

WE DO:

  • Free monthly events in cities around the world where members suggest the topics they want to hear about.
  • A free mentorship scheme called 'who's your momma?' in selected cities.
  • Key global events throughout the year (awards, screenings, meetups and conferences).

We believe in stopping gender leadership imbalance by focusing on exposing our collective voices, not just the one of a happy few. And we do this by being a non-hierarchical action-based organization where:

  • Members have a say and our events and mentorship are free. Most organizations are committee based and people have to dish out some cash to be able to participate in the conversation.
  • We answer to nobody except our members. So yes, we are not for profit which gives us immense freedom to best serve our collective.
  • There are no barriers for entry and everyone can learn and participate in changing  the ratio of women leaders in the creative industries.
  • We don't just discuss women's issues, we discuss topics that will improve our careers. And we do this almost everyday around the globe.

Minorities in STEM

Minorities in STEM

Our Goal

The aim of Minorities in STEM is to create a network that can connect, support and showcase the individuals working and studying within STEM.

We want to work with other organisations and industry partners to help them begin to have the conversations that are required to address diversity issues.

There are four key areas that we are focused on:

  • Academia
  • Industry
  • Education
  • Public Engagement

The Background

In early 2017, Alex curated and hosted two Science Showoff events fully fronted by diverse people working with STEM.

Showcasing some of the best diverse talent within science, one bit of audience feedback stuck with him:

“I didn’t realise that there were so many other brown people in science like me”

Although Black and Minority Ethnicity (BME) individuals make up 12.8% of the UK population, this is still not reflected within the public’s perception of what a scientist looks like.

Studies have shown that BME representation within the UK STEM workforce is complex – with BME individuals concentrated at both the lower and higher ends of the spectrum.

It is not different within academia, with the Runnymede Trust reporting in 2015 that only 17 professors in the UK were Black Women.

Although data into the general BME STEM population is at an early stage, what these figures describe is a situation in the UK where BME individuals are thinly represented across STEM.
