Investment in diversity and inclusion underscored by activities occurring at AWS re:Invent 2019
DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, announced plans to further strengthen its commitment to underrepresented persons by more than doubling its annual time and financial investments to alleviate the skills and diversity gaps in cybersecurity. Trend Micro facilitates and invests in a wide range of global initiatives to support all cybersecurity technologists, including several activities taking place this week at AWS re:Invent.
Trend Micro is co-sponsoring this year’s We Power Tech activities during the conference, along with Accenture. We Power Tech is building a future of technology that is diverse, inclusive, and accessible. Trend Micro’s involvement helps to facilitate a list of sessions, networking and social activities for a global network of underrepresented technologists.
In addition, Trend Micro is deepening its annual sponsorship with Girls in Tech by announcing a global cybersecurity classroom program slated for 2020. The curriculum will provide the virtual ability to learn and enhance cybersecurity skills and will be accessible to women of all ages, backgrounds and geographical locations. Trend Micro is again sponsoring select members of Girls in Tech from around the globe to attend and experience this year’s AWS conference.
“With a female CEO and an employee base spread almost equally across the eastern and western hemispheres, diversity and inclusion are fundamental to Trend Micro,” said Leah MacMillan, chief marketing officer for Trend Micro. “Success for our industry is not simply equal representation in a conference room; we encourage an environment that listens to and encourages diverse and unique thought from every single person.”
