Women in Tech: Clare Nelson

Clare Nelson: A cybersecurity, privacy and identity expert

Welcome to the first installment of Trulioo’s Women in Tech blog series, curated to shine a light on women who are blazing a trail in the technology industry. Did you know that on average, only 20 percent of tech jobs are held by women, despite the fact they make up half the workforce? In an effort to create a more diverse workforce, our aim is to share with you the thoughts and opinions — as well as the challenges and struggles — of some of tech’s top movers and shakers.

  • Promoting more women from within
  • Anonymizing or pseudonymizing resumes for as much of the candidate screening process as possible
  • Providing internal training to help employees recognize their biases and strive to hire and promote a more diverse workforce
  • Urging schools to promote startup contests in conjunction with science fairs. Encourage young people of all genders to start their own companies if they are so inclined.
  • Telling stories about successful female entrepreneurs and leaders in all walks of life.
  • Contribution to open standards: As a member of the World Wide Web (W3C) Consortium, I am part of the Verifiable Credentials working group. Our mission is: “to make expressing and exchanging credentials that have been verified by a third party easier and more secure on the Web.”
  • Mentoring: Great satisfaction comes from working with C1ph3r_Qu33ns — helping other women (and men) further their careers.
