Women in Cybersecurity
The University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s Cyber Arena is teaming up with The Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub to host a Women in Cybersecurity event from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 8, 2022, to celebrate International Women’s Day. Participants can attend virtually or in person at the Hub- 204 E 4th St, North Little Rock, AR 72114.
The event will give girls a chance to learn what it’s like to choose a career in cybersecurity. The event, recommended for girls in sixth grade and older, will feature a panel of female mentors working in cybersecurity as well as several hands-on activities from women in the field.
Food will be provided for in-person attendees. Registration (whether in person or online) is required. Click here to register: Women in Cyber Security Registration
