I am excited to announce that I am the closing keynote speaker for Diana Initiative Virtual Conference on Saturday 8/22/2020 at 4:00 Pacific time!
I spent a lot of time trying to determine what topic would be the most relevant and inspiring in these tough times. I thought about the recurring themes of the conversations I have with other women in the industry.
Then it became clear:
I need to shine a light on the shared negative experiences that are often discussed in private channels and offer tips to empower women to succeed despite it all.
My talk is entitled Gatekeeping, Gaslighting & Grieving: Excelling Despite The Ugly Phases of Your Security Development Life Cycle.
I’ll be covering career planning (SDLC), asking for your worth, promoting yourself, reclaiming your time, negotiation strategies, and more.
There will also be a surprise giveaway at the end. I hope you’ll join us. Here’s the link to the full schedule.
