About the SIA Progress Award

The SIA Progress Award, presented by the Security Industry Association's Women in Security Forum, celebrates an individual who is advancing opportunities and paving the way to success for women in the security industry. Each recipient is determined based on the following criteria:

  • Contributions to advancing women in the security industry within the past three years (e.g., volunteer activities and/or grassroots efforts, new programs, new company policies to promote a more diverse workforce and thought leadership)
  • Promoting women’s professional growth through mentorship and/or sponsorship
  • Recognitions and/or awards for related activities
  • Demonstration of the highest levels of professionalism and integrity in the security industry

All nominees must be employees of SIA member companies, and each nomination must include a letter from a colleague in the security industry on why the candidate deserves the award.
