  • A Matter of Economic Security: Allies & Leadership in Energy and Tech
    The purpose of this panel is to provide fresh perspectives to the debate around the impact of the talent gap on national security. Leaders in energy, technology, and managed services will share solutions to closing the opportunity gap by confronting the barriers faced by people of diverse backgrounds, genders, and ways of thinking. The panelists will evaluate the options we have as an industry and individuals to open doors, elevate confidence levels, and grow the community of professionals to address new/emerging threats to our economic security. The examination method will include candid conversations around how the participants overcame many obstacles to success in critical infrastructure, security technology, and consulting. As leaders in their fields, the panelists will provide valuable insight for those interested in security careers. They will also propose solutions that existing practitioners can use to help their orgs recruit underestimated talent and earn those referral bonuses. Finally, the panel will challenge the industry to follow HouSecCon’s lead on inclusiveness being a part of the fabric of the conference instead of an afterthought.
