Girls Who Code. Lean In. Grace Hopper. Women in Cybersecurity. Brain Babe. With so many targeted initiatives to increase the number of women in cybersecurity careers, what is really happening on the ground with girls and women entering and staying in the field of cybersecurity. Can we hope to get the balance of women/men to 50/50 or is this goal missing the point? Who is getting this right and how are they doing it? What efforts can each of us make to influence girls and women in our communities and organizations?
