Security LeadHER conference mission

Security LeadHER welcomes individuals of all backgrounds and genders. If you support the mission of advancing women in the global security industry, then this event is for you! This conference has been designed to be an open, friendly and welcoming environment. During Security LeadHER, there will be numerous opportunities for participants to connect and collaborate and experience lively social events and networking opportunities. The educational programming will focus on top leadership, security and innovation issues and topics and feature impactful presentations from industry-leading subject matter experts.

Security LeadHER was established in 2023 by SIA and ASIS, and the inaugural conference was held this past June in Nashville, Tennessee. Approximately 300 current and future “LeadHERs” and attendees of all backgrounds and genders gathered for the first-ever Security LeadHER to learn about important women’s leadership issues, get helpful communication tips, explore cutting-edge technology and security trends and learn concrete skills to achieve their goals professionally and in every aspect of their lives. View takeaways from the 2023 event here.
