The Committee of Women in Security and Intelligence of IOSI is aiming to empower young professional women to join, learn, exchange ideas, share knowledge, and to develop theoretical initiatives regarding best practices in security and intelligence.
The initial objectives of the CWSI:
The initial objectives of the committee are, but are not limited to, discussing, developing, and promoting security and intelligence initiatives. The intention is to create awareness about current trends and issues in the field.
We aim to foster such an environment by providing seminars, webinars, conferences, workshops, and training in this one-stop shop not-for-profit organization. Participation in international and local events will be discussed and approved in the committee.
The benefits for members of the CWSI:
- Professional learning through constant participation with respected professionals in the field.
- Leadership development and in-depth access to current security and intelligence topics.
- Expansion of your professional networks.
The leading topic in the CWSI:
The Committee of Women in Security and Intelligence of IOSI will be focusing on Gender-Based Violence (Violence Against Women and Girls) as the leading topic of discussion for 2021. Considering the ever-growing situation on this matter, it is timely to mainly focus on this subject; violence against women and girls continues to be one of the most pervasive manifestations of discrimination and violations of human rights.
The Committee of Women in Security and Intelligence of IOSI (CWSI), alongside with a helping hand of technology, will aim to bring progress and solutions, on any scale, to combat Gender-Based Violence. This issue should be considered a global pandemic given that it affects 1 out of 3 women in their lifetime.
