Queue for the Loo: female entrepreneurism in cyber

On Wednesday 19 September, techUK helped launch the Queue for the Loo initiative; a series of events and online resources aimed at women in the cyber security sector. The initiative, spearheaded by Sian John of Microsoft, will include quarterly networking events for female cyber professionals to network, exchange ideas and find mentors.

According to a recent study, the proportion of women in the UK cyber security sector stands at just 8 per cent, one of the lowest proportions in the world, with men earning an average of 16 per cent more than women. This initiative looks to not only create a stronger network between women in cyber but also to encourage them to do more to get others to consider their options in this space. 

The next Queue for the Loo event will take place on Wednesday 5 December, at Level39 in Canary Wharf (One Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5AB) and will focus on entrepreneurism in the cyber security sector. Sponsored by Adeptis, the event will be followed by a networking reception.  We will also be giving those looking to get in to the cyber sector an opportunity to be paired with a mentor to help them on their journey.

Speakers include:

Shannon Johnson, UK Consultant, Adeptis Group

Daniela Menzky, Chief Operating Office, CyNation

Joanna Wlazlak, Head of Operations, CyLon

Peter Meehan, Founder, Cyber Work Alliance
