GISF’s Project and Membership Officer for Europe, Laura Van de Vloet, recently sat down for an interview with The Minerva Mission, to discuss Women in Security. The interview allowed Laura to open up about her experiences, not only around beginning a career in the security sector, but how that journey has been fundamentally shaped by being a woman.
‘The Minerva Mission’ is an information hub for women in the security sector, set up by Anna-Liisa Tampuu, founder of SheTravel. With interviews like Laura’s, they want to raise awareness about the security sector amongst women, and encourage them to join this very versatile sector, through sharing stories of other women doing the jobs, as well as create a platform where women can support each other and share advice with others.
The Minerva Mission wants to also highlight and include those jobs in the sector that are the ‘less obvious’. Not only corporate risk, cyber intelligence, etc. but also include the SRM third sector jobs, related to security.
