How Can We Succeed in Attracting (Young) Women to the Promising Careers of Information Security and Computing? – A Project Testing an Experience-Driven Approach

Title:
How Can We Succeed in Attracting (Young) Women to the Promising Careers of Information Security and Computing? – A Project Testing an Experience-Driven Approach
Authors:
Abstract:
Information technology and digitization increasingly permeate all aspects of today’s society. Diverse perspectives and skills are needed to shape these changes in a secure and socially responsible manner. Computing, information security, and data protection are promising fields for working in this context. But how can we succeed in attracting more (young) women to these career paths and thus ensure that they play an equal part in shaping the future? The paper presents a project that sets out to raise the interest of girls and young women in the job of security specialist in particular, and computing degrees and vocational trainings in general, by means of four experience-driven measures: game-based learning scenarios to increase sensitization, the presentation of the occupational profiles of security experts as a means to enhance motivation, the setting up of role model portraits to make women working in infor-mation security more visible, and informative events for multipliers.
