MARINA DEL REY, Calif. – The California Alarm Association (CAA) recently launched the Women In the Security Evolution (WISE) committee, according to an association announcement.

WISE is “dedicated to supporting, empowering, and promoting women across all disciplines within the security industry spectrum of professional roles,” the announcement says.

The inaugural launch of WISE occurred at the CAA 2023 Winter Convention and “showcased the forward thinking of the association to inspire leadership and support of women in security,” according to the association announcement.

The committee “will operate with a clear mission based on four cornerstones to enhance equality, visibility, accessibility and inclusivity for women within the electronic security industry with a notable aspect of ensuring gender neutrality for all to join,” the announcement says.

Why CAA Launched the WISE Committee

During the CAA convention, committee members were “highly visible during key events and discussions, including holding their founder’s meeting, being the panel for the executive symposium, delivering the keynote address, and leading several of the educational sessions,” according to the announcement.

“The introduction of WISE is a pivotal step forward for the CAA and industry as a whole,” says CAA president Sean Cooke in the association announcement. “In our journey towards inclusivity and diversity, WISE is positioned to navigate crucial steps for all of us.”

CAA WISE Chair, Cathy Rempel, expressed her gratitude to the CAA and excitement for WISE.

“It’s an honor to support the CAA in their direction of inclusivity and diversity,” she says. “The activities and focus of WISE is a testament to the group’s commitment to enhancing the role of women in the security industry.

“WISE is not just talking about change, they’re making it happen. As we look forward to more from this dynamic group, it’s clear that the future for women in security is brighter than ever,” says Rempel.
