“Recognising the contributions of women in the security industry and beyond”
On March 8th, the world celebrates International Women’s Day, a day dedicated to recognising the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.
As we celebrate this important day, it is important to recognise the achievements of women in all industries, including the security industry. Women are making a significant impact and helping to shape the future of our industry. From executives to security officers, women bring unique skills and perspectives that are essential to creating a safe and secure world.
According to a report by the International Security Management Association, women currently make up 20% of the security workforce, up from just 10% in 2013. This increase is a testament to the growing recognition of the unique skills and perspectives that women bring to the table.
“As a security company, we are proud to have many talented and dedicated women on our team, Their diverse backgrounds and experiences help us better serve our clients and create a more inclusive and welcoming workplace.” Tony Daou – ISEC CEO
But while we celebrate the achievements of women in the security industry, it is also important to acknowledge that gender inequality still exists in many areas of life. Women continue to face challenges in the workplace, in education, and in their personal lives.
As a society, we need to continue working towards gender equality and creating a world where women have the same opportunities as men. On this International Women’s Day, let’s choose to challenge gender bias and inequality, and work towards a more inclusive and equitable world for all.
