MITRE Webinar | Taking Action at MITRE to Inspire the Next Generation of Cyber Professionals

December 12, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Effectively addressing the nation’s growing cyber needs will require a concerted effort to include people from across the full spectrum of our nation’s citizens. Action-focused efforts to increase the number of women and people of color in cyber fields are critically important but still nascent and tend to over-index on technical skills rather than addressing the fundamentally multidisciplinary nature of the field.

This session will share details of MITRE’s innovative Cyber Futures program, which is taking action to address the lack of diversity in cyber. Webinar attendees will learn how MITRE launched the program, lessons learned since its 2021 instantiation, and get ideas on how to shape similar programs with their own organizations. Join WiCyS strategic partner MITRE as Leslie Anderson, Chief Strategist, Cyber Operation Integration, as she takes a deep dive into this experiential summer student internship focused on recruiting and training the next generation of cyber defender on Tuesday, December 12th at 1pm CT.
