International Women’s Day is celebrated annually on 8th March.
This day celebrates the achievement of women across various elements and calls for gender parity. International Women’s Day is all about unity, reflection, advocacy and action.
Women in International Security (WIIS) is dedicated to advancing the leadership and development of women in the security field. WIIS sponsors leadership training, mentoring, networking programs and holds events centred around current policy issues.
Women in Security Awards are also held annually – these recognise the value, accomplishments, value and contributions of women within the wider world of security.
There are various misconceptions within the security industry – one of them is that Women cannot work as security officers or guards. G3 Security pride ourselves in having a diverse workforce. There are various reasons for why more women should join the security sector and we’ve highlighted them below:
1. Women tend to feel more comfortable approaching and speaking with other women. The security industry is all about making people safe and ensuring security guards act as a good deterrent. That’s why it’s always good to have a female officer as for some people they can be more approachable and easy to speak to.
2. A good size and build can sometimes ensure a physical presence. However, physical features do not always help. Sometimes conflicts need to be dealt with in a calm manner. This can help ensure less aggressive outcomes and may lead to swift conflict management.
3. Female security guards also have access to areas where males may not be allowed. For instance, toilets or fitting rooms.
