Security LeadHER 2024 “builds on the tremendous success of last year’s inaugural event, gathering attendees of all backgrounds and genders,” according to the joint announcement.

The 2024 agenda “featured a diverse range of presentations and discussions addressing the unique challenges and opportunities faced by women in the security industry.”

Session topics included the power of authenticity in leadership, addressing and overcoming imposter syndrome, managing the multigenerational workplace, fostering male allyship in the security industry, negotiation tactics and more.
