Security Systems News (SSN) has an excellent annual edition of its publication that highlights accomplishments of women in the electronic security industry. Like the need to bring younger people into our industry, SIAC also supports recruiting and publicizing the efforts of women in security to keep our businesses vibrant in the years ahead.
We are a growing country of diversity. It’s important that our companies reflect that. One way to open doors is through writing about accomplishments and ideas. SSN does a great job of that in several articles on key women influencing our markets.
Check out the articles we’ve highlighted in this blog. Click on the links. You’ll find interesting women influencing what’s going to happen in the years ahead. You’ll find fresh perspective. We like that.
In each section of the publication—Commercial & Systems Integrators; Monitoring; Residential; and Suppliers—SSN features one woman who is making a difference in security today, including The Protection Bureau’s SVP Karen Baker, Custom Alarm’s CEO Melissa Brinkman, Washington Alarm’s COO Shannon Woodman, and Iluminar’s president, CEO and co-founder Edwina “Eddie” Reynolds.
We appreciate SSN’s annual publicity. Our industry is better off for it.
