About the Event

The COVID-19 Pandemic has wreaked havoc on unemployment rates, yet the cybersecurity skills gap continues to rise.  With the low percentage of women in cybersecurity careers, the cyber market has reached a point of transformation that hinges on the inclusion and advancement of women. Join the Women’s Security Alliance (WomSA) as we discuss women in cybersecurity and how the pandemic has impacted the job market.

THANK YOU to our sponsors: SailPoint, BeyondTrust, Crowdstrike, Proofpoint, Meijer, Comerica, OneMagnify, and CBI !!!

Discussion Topics:

  • Building a Diverse IT & Cybersecurity Team (Diane Jones, Executive Director of Administration, University of Michigan).    U of M has developed a recruiting process that ensures representation from a diverse talent pool and significantly increases the chances of building a diverse team. Diane will share U of M’s tips and best practices that have achieved such strong results.
  • Apprenti Program (Valerie Robinson, Executive Business Development Lead, Apprenti). The Apprenti Program has a $1.5M grant to help women, veterans, and minorities transition into technology careers. This program is significantly underutilized, and funding is going unused.
