SIA to Honour Women in Security With New Initiative
18 January 2022
 

The Security Industry Association (SIA) has opened the call for nominations for the SIA Women in Security Forum Power 100.

New for 2022, this annual initiative presented by the SIA Women in Security Forum will honour 100 women in the security industry who are role models for actively advancing diversity, inclusion, innovation and leadership in the community.

“The SIA Women in Security Forum is proud to introduce the Power 100 program and looks forward to recognizing the inaugural class of honorees at ISC West,” said SIA Women in Security Forum Chair Kasia Hanson.

“The Power 100 is a new way for the SIA Women in Security Forum to celebrate the extraordinary leaders in our industry who are raising the bar, breaking barriers and advancing opportunities for women.”

This new recognition program will celebrate women in security who model leadership, inspire others and shape and transform the industry.

“Each year, the SIA Women in Security Forum’s efforts to foster a more diverse security workforce grow even stronger, and we are thrilled to build on the forum’s successes with the Power 100 initiative,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “This new program will recognize women who lead, inspire and innovate and are truly making a difference in the global security industry.”

To nominate someone for the inaugural Power 100 program, complete the nomination form here. Individuals may submit more than one nomination each, and all nominations must be submitted by Friday 18 February 2022.
