Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

NPR reports that 80% of computer programmers are men. As an engaged group that believes in the benefits of gender diversity, OWASP wants to know what we can do to close that gap. In this session, we have invited women from different stages of their Information Security careers to share experiences and offer suggestion about what can be done to improve the situation. We will also hear from a stakeholder in the corporate community who offers best practices to manage diversity within organizations large and small. Moderator: Joan Goodchild, Editor, CSO Online.
