United Nations Commission on the Status of Women Presentation
From Second Grade to Second Act: Cybersecurity Promotes Gender Equality, presented by BPW Colorado member, Teressa Gehrke
Open to all BPW members and nonmembers!
Place is Hello Darling, coffee shop and cocktail bar, in Denver!

There is a gap in gender representation within the cybersecurity field that adversely affects equality and empowerment of young women and women seeking to restart their careers, especially during the pandemic. This has been a longstanding issue in the field of technology where women are a small proportion of the workforce.
The keynote speaker, Teressa Gehrke, is the Founder and CEO of PopCykol, a cybersecurity awareness company for kids. She has worked in cybersecurity since 2014 as a technical writer, user experience consultant, and project manager. She holds a master's degree in Genetic Anthropology and International Development from Colorado State University and studied network security at Arapahoe Community College. She consults for companies in cybersecurity offering her expertise in security awareness and project design. She was nominated for Cybersecurity Woman of the Year in 2022 by United Cybersecurity Alliance. She is the vice president of the BPW Denver chapter (NFBPWC affiliate chapter).
