STEM and role models can help this complex issue
Before discussing the retention of women in cybersecurity, we need to look at the numbers of women entering the workforce in cybersecurity.  Without having specific data, i would guess the numbers also are low.  Programs promoting STEM with young girls cannot do enough to gear young girls and women in our industry direction.  We also need to start promoting Women in Cybersecurity as role models in our teaching and in the case studies around.

Re: But?
