Sexism and Security: what should we be doing?
Sexism, put simply, is prejudice or discrimination (typically) based on a person’s sex or gender. One United Nations report has noted that sexism is “widespread and prevalent in all sectors and all societies.” Research in the security sector has confirmed that women suffer from different forms of sexism, be that of behaviour, attitudes and language to give but three examples. It is a sector that is male dominated and has sometimes promoted ‘macho’ images as an attractive feature of recruits and that feeds stereotypes. There is much hope that it is changing, but is it, in what ways and how fast? In this webinar we will discuss:

Forms of sexism in the security sector and the extent to which they are being challenged
The key challenges and barriers to overcoming them
The routes to less sexism in security

Panellists:
Monicah Kimeu - Secretary General at Women in Safety Excellence (Kenya)
Angela Osborne - Associate Vice President, Risk and Emergency Management Solutions at Guidepost Solutions (US)
