Global Security Exchange 2023 – Coming Together to Advance Security Worldwide
As we gather in Dallas, Texas for GSX 2023, we want to thank you for your part in advancing the security profession. GSX brings together professionals from all walks of life with one purpose – to create a safer world.
At GSX we all play a role in creating a collaborative and inclusive space where we seek to engage in courteous, respectful, and inspiring conversations; and where we ensure everyone feels welcomed because they feel heard regardless of their sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, color, religious creed, national origin, physical or mental disability.
Whether you are attending sessions, networking, or exploring the expo hall, please be mindful of your role in bringing the profession together. How are you encouraging others to share their ideas? How are you participating as an active listener? How are you reaching out to those who are new to offer a sense of welcome to the event?

Diverse perspectives contribute to a stronger and more vibrant community, and embracing these differences is key to the success of our collective endeavors.
