Encouraging female participation in the cybersecurity industry

In a study titled 'Battle for the thermostat: Gender and the effect of temperature on cognitive performance' by Chang TY and Kajackaite A that was published on 22 May 2019 in the journal PLOS One, the study found that women's productivity improved when the thermostat in the office is set to warmer temperatures.

Some 543 students participated in a lab experiment carried out in Berlin, Germany which involved testing them on a set of math, verbal and cognitive reflection problems. The tests took place in rooms at various temperatures between 16.19 degrees Celsius (roughly 61 degrees Fahrenheit) to 32.57 degrees Celsius (roughly 91 degrees Fahrenheit).

Previous research has found that most modern offices use climate control systems based on the metabolic rate of an average man, with the ideal temperature for women almost 5 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than it is for men.

Females make up nearly 60% of our workforce and we have been growing year on year since incorporation. 

Need we say more?
