Security LeadHER invites you to submit a proposal to present and share your expertise at the first-ever SIA and ASIS International conference dedicated to the advancement of women in the global security industry. Designed to empower women in security and their allies while exploring global security topics, answering widespread questions, and discovering practical ideas driving today’s most successful women in security. Whether your passion is leadership, power skills, or DE&I, or you’d rather share your industry expertise around security innovation, technology, or trends, we encourage you to submit your speaking proposal. The deadline for proposals to be submitted is February 20, 2023. To learn more about submitting your proposal, please visit and click on “Speaking Proposals” in the navigation bar at the top of the page.

“On behalf of the SIA Women in Security Forum, I am thrilled to co-lead this inaugural event with Antoinette and ASIS International. The theme for this event is “Leading Change,” and attendees will have opportunities to meet influencers and industry experts face-to-face, break out of their comfort zones, and re-energize! The thoughtfully curated content will be designed to encourage and support the growth of both current and future LeadHers. I hope you will consider submitting ideas during the call for proposals and attending this one-of-a-kind event in our industry. This is not your mother’s conference!” 
Elaine Palome, Security LeadHER, Co-Chair 

“It is truly an honor to have been asked to be involved in the inaugural Security LeadHER conference jointly hosted by SIA and ASIS International. The success of this event lies in the content we provide to the attendees. We are excited to open the “Call for Proposals” on February 1 and expect to have many quality submissions to choose from. I am looking forward to learning from the sessions that are selected, and I know the selection committee will have their work cut out for them during the selection process. This is an event that is not to be missed.”
