On Thursday August 9th and Friday 10th 2018, The Diana Initiative will host a two day conference celebrating diversity, women in InfoSec, and how to pursue a career in information security and technology. The Diana Initiative 2018 theme is “Hacker Family: Our Diversity Unifies Us.”

INI director Dena Haritos Tsamitis is speaking on Friday, August 10, 2018 from 12:30-12:55 p.m. Her talk is titled: "Fraud Alert: Shatter Impostor Syndrome." Details: https://dianainitiative2018.busyconf.com/schedule#…

Our mission is to:

  • Encourage diversity and support women who want to pursue careers in information security
  • Promote diverse and supportive workplaces.
  • Help change workplace cultures.

We want to give attendees the opportunity to network and collaborate, because there is a sense of empowerment and validation in shared experiences. This will be a casual, relaxed space where everyone is welcome. Come “Meet a Mentor”.

We believe in the value of nurturing talent within our community, and mentoring is one of the best ways to give back. Be inspired by our speakers who will share their experiences in the field and their insights. We’ll have some fun events, great conversations, and hopefully launch a career or two. Join us!
