We're proud to announce our partnership with the Equal Respect movement.  
Equal Respect Speakers Bureau
To further the movement, we've launched the Equal Respect Speakers Bureau.  If you'd like to raise your profile as a public speaker or sign up to speak at an event, sign up on our website!    
Equal Respect Column
WISP also supports the IT Security Planet Equal Respect Column.  

Equal Respect is a grassroots initiative that promotes open and respectful environments at professional events. An Equal Respect conference prohibits and discourages promotional or marketing behaviors that disrespect groups of attendees based on gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, or ethnicity. Originated by Chenxi Wang and Zenobia Godschalk at RSA 2015, the Equal Respect initiative is now a community effort.
