CyberWIDE – Virtual Webinar – March 29, 2022
March 29 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
North Texas ISSA D&I initiative called CyberWIDE (https://www.ntxissa.org/) is proud to present a panel discussion on Equality Vs. Equity. While emphasis has been on equality for some time, the concept of equity and actionable steps to create equity still remain vague. To address this, CyberWIDE is hosting a panel discussion on this topic on March 29th from 11:00 am to 1pm central time. We would be gaining valuable insights from industry leaders and leave the audience with actionable steps to create more equity.
