Out of stock



This workshop will highlight best practices and strategies for educators and employers to improve diversity and inclusion across cybersecurity work roles. This will be an active working session in which participants will leave with a draft plan for improving diversity and inclusion in their organization. The first segment will provide an overview of various education, training, and workforce development programs that aim to broaden participation in cybersecurity, including women, under-represented minorities, and veterans. The panelists will share strategies for career discovery, recruitment, retention, pathway and curricular development, reskilling and upskilling to broaden participation and attract, prepare, and retain underrepresented populations. In the second segment, participants will work in small groups to develop draft actionable strategies and plans to enhance diversity and inclusion for their organizations.
