Convergint Women Connect proudly sponsored the AcceleRISE Conference, reinforcing Convergint’s commitment to fostering a culture of growth, excellence, and opportunity for young women and up-and-coming industry professionals. AcceleRISE, presented by the SIA RISE community, is an event for young professionals and those new to the security industry. Attendees were joined by other rising stars in the industry to take their careers to the next level.

The AcceleRISE Conference included a dynamic lineup of inspiring, informative sessions on the most cutting-edge security trends and how attendees can sharpen leadership skills and maximize their potential. Some sessions included:

  • Communication Skills from Small Talk to Team Meetings: tips and tricks as a young professional to really connect with listeners
  • ChatGPT Panel: AI in the security industry
  • EQ, Not IQ: the ability to recognize, understand, and deal with emotions and the emotions of others
  • Unlocking Inclusive Access: access control and the world of security

AcceleRISE hosted many other events outside of the sessions to allow attendees to network, including a Rockies game, a reception at Wynkoop Brewing Company, and a welcome reception at the Denver Selfie Museum.

As a leader in the security industry, Convergint aims to attract and retain new talent to work towards its #1 mission of being its customer’s best service provider. With new and advanced cyber threats, the acceleration of digital transformation, and the fourth industrial revolution ahead, now is the perfect time to join the rapidly changing and expanding security industry.

“It was so refreshing to see the new generation of security professionals and feel like the industry is in good hands. I went back to my CTC with so many ideas, thoughts, and initiatives to continue being our customer’s best service provider. As the chair of my CTCs Inclusion and Diversity committee as well, it really resonated with me on what I need to educate others on. I think this event is valuable for us as individuals, but also as a company that strives to create a positive and inclusive environment and lead innovation.”
