Empow(H)er Cybersecurity is an inclusive organization focused on diversifying the cybersecurity talent pipeline by empowering, mentoring, educating, and providing career guidance and opportunities for women of color.
At Empow(H)er Cybersecurity we believe that by providing women of color with a welcoming, encouraging, and supportive environment to learn, grow, and test their skills, we can fuel the fire that encourages them to accept the opportunities and risks necessary to achieve success and build confidence - ultimately leading to an impactful contribution to a diverse cybersecurity talent pipeline.
Tackling the lack of diversity in the cybersecurity talent pipeline requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. Empow(H)er Cybersecurity emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and empower women of color, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. We are an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support.
