Women need to work twice as hard to receive half the credit for the same work as men. They are paid less, receive less career advancement, and training opportunities than their male counterparts.
In Canada, 50% of women will drop out of Information Technology within the first four years of their career.
Women make up only 11% of the global workforce. Organizations struggle to find skilled resources to build the capacity of the next generation of cybersecurity warriors to defend against increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks and cybercrime.
