Posted by Tim on March 15, 2017 in Academic Presentations

Date: Tuesday, March 21, 2017 from 12:00 p.m.to 1:00 p.m.

Are you hungry for empowerment? The UB Women in STEM Cooperative is sponsoring a brown bag, noon time lecture series that explores gender differences in STEM careers. Our featured speakers will share their insights and challenge your assumptions. Bring your lunch and a friend!

Presenter: Dr. Laura Amo, Visiting Assistant Professor, Management Science and Systems, School of Management

Abstract: Opportunities in Cybersecurity, Discussing Gender Differences

Cybersecurity engagement and awareness applies to everyone, but opportunities to study and train in cybersecurity areas are limited within our educational system. In turn, there is a lack of cyber talent in the USA, and there is low representation of women in cyber fields. Please join Dr. Amo as she discusses her research in cybersecurity, the scale she developed to measure cybersecurity engagement and self-efficacy, and findings with regard to closing the gender gap through opportunities to engage in cyber activities.

This brown bag lunch lecture is hosted by the Office of Student Life and is located in 240 Student Union. Admission is free and open to the public but seating is limited. Lunch is not included.
