Women in Security

Updated: Jan 22

We look to each other, to support and lift each other up!

Hello and welcome to our vibrant community!

As we step into 2024, I can't help but feel a surge of excitement and optimism. I am thrilled to introduce our Women in Security group, a dynamic and inclusive community dedicated to empowering women in the security industry. This year, we are poised to embark on a transformative journey, one that honors the leaders of the past, learns from the visionaries of today, and nurtures the trailblazers of tomorrow.

Our Vision for 2024 and Beyond

Women in Security is not just a group; it's a movement. We are a collective of passionate individuals united by a common goal: to make significant strides in an industry that has long been male-dominated. We aim to break barriers, challenge norms, and create an environment where women in security can thrive, grow, and lead.

Learning from the Past, Present, and Future

Our mission for 2024 is to delve deep into the lessons of leadership across time. We want to look back at the leaders of the past, drawing inspiration and wisdom from their experiences. There is so much to learn from their resilience, their struggles, and their triumphs. By understanding their journeys, we can build a stronger foundation for our own paths.

Simultaneously, we turn our gaze to the leaders of today. These are the visionaries shaping the current landscape of security. From them, we seek to learn about innovation, adaptability, and the skills needed to excel in today’s rapidly evolving world. Their stories are a testament to what is possible when determination meets opportunity.

But perhaps most importantly, we look at each other – the emerging leaders of tomorrow. Our group is a rich tapestry of diverse experiences, skills, and aspirations. We believe that by supporting each other, sharing our knowledge, and fostering a culture of collaboration, we can all grow together. Each member of our group is both a mentor and a mentee, a teacher and a learner.

Supporting and Celebrating Each Other

In 2024, we are committed to creating platforms for dialogue, learning, and recognition. We plan to host webinars, workshops, and networking events that not only provide practical skills but also nurture connections and friendships. Our monthly newsletters will highlight the successes of our members, celebrating each milestone as a collective victory.

A Call to Action

As the founder of Women in Security, I invite you to join us in this exciting journey. Whether you are a seasoned professional, a newcomer to the field, or someone with a passion for security, your voice and your story are important. Together, we can build a future where women are not just participants in the security industry but are leading and shaping it.

Let's make 2024 a year of growth, empowerment, and collective success. Here's to a future where women in security are recognized, valued, and celebrated.

To a bright and promising year ahead, cheers!

Amber Oquindo,

Founder, Women in Security
