I will join two other professional women — Jenny Dearborn, SVP and CLO at SAP, and Nellie Borrero, Global Inclusion and Diversity Managing Director at Accenture — and we will share our stories and discuss the importance and power of authenticity.

Whether at home, at work or on the go, 21st century technology allows us to be “connected” to the web at all times.

However, with this high-tech era comes phishing: a new and common gateway for criminals and hackers to steal private information. Phishing is a way that criminals attempt to obtain access or sensitive data such as usernames, passwords and credit card details through a disguised email acting as an invoice, bank statement or password reset notification. Phishing can occur through almost any communication medium including automated phone calls, social media and email, and can happen anywhere you can be enticed to click on a link, open a document or disclose sensitive information.

That’s why campaigns like IWD are necessary — to help drive change through targeted action and move us all closer to a more gender-inclusive world. This requires each of us — individuals, businesses and organizations — to step up and “Be Bold for Change.”
