International Women’s Day 2021 – A Narrative of Change
|Date||8 Mar 2021|
|Time||10:00 am GMT |5:00 am|
On International Women’s Day 2021, The Security Institute and our Inclusive Security Special Interest Group [ISSIG] want to spotlight some of the key equality, diversity and inclusion [EDI] issues that are impacting women’s ability to thrive, work safely and effectively, particularly in the current global context and in the security sector.

Are we emboldening unacceptable behaviour, and are we equipped with a changed narrative and tools to support #OurSecurity inclusively?
The Security Institute are hosting this webinar with the ISSIG looking with a fresh lens, honesty and perspective at the real issues and case studies faced in the current working environment, and when virtual workspaces are not #safespaces aligning to an inclusive #OurSecurity. Bringing together an esteemed panel of positive leaders and role models in EDI and security professionals from many different sectors and across the world, including:
Please join to gain a rich insight of challenges, success and how we can work together to create a narrative of change moving forward. #OurSecurity #SafeSpaces
