ePlus inc. (NASDAQ NGS: PLUS – news) today announced its sponsorship of Check Point’s virtual Women in IT event in support of the drive to engage more women in STEM fields, including cyber security.
The event, which will take place online on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 from 12:00 – 1:30 PM ET, will bring together a panel of female leaders to connect and consider how organizations are navigating today’s uncharted waters and how they will adapt in the months ahead. The panel will feature special guest speaker, Erin Brockovich, an iconic environmental activist, consumer advocate, real-life inspiration for the Oscar-winning film Erin Brockovich, and New York Times bestselling author.
The event will also include dialogue around:
Diversity in the workplace and why it is important to recruit more women to IT positions
Finding work/life balance with remote working blurring the lines between work and home life
Recruitment and retention of women in technology and leadership positions
“It is a well-known fact that there is a shortage of women in STEM fields and, as a leading IT integrator, ePlus has an important role to play in helping to address that issue,” said Elaine Marion, CFO. “We are committed to helping to drive interest, learning, engagement and diversity in technology, and as Check Point’s America’s Cloud Partner of the Year, we are proud of our partnership with Check Point as well as our sponsorship of the Women in IT event.”
Two charities have been selected as beneficiaries of the event. Check Point will donate $5 to either Girls Who Code or Dress for Success on behalf of each event attendee.
