State of Inclusion


Previous studies have shown that the representation of women in cybersecurity is not where it should be, but it is not as clear why this is the case, or how exactly we can improve matters. In collaboration with the DEI firm Aleria, we are launching a pioneering study to understand the real causes of disparities in the experiences of women in cybersecurity, and to help us understand how best to pinpoint and remove the barriers that keep women from being recruited, hired, retained and promoted at the same rate as men.

Please join us in this exciting project to ensure that your voice is heard as we identify root causes and pinpoint initiatives to eliminate disparities and inequities.

Sign up for one of our one-hour Measuring Inclusion Workshops.

During each workshop, participants have the opportunity to share workplace experiences using Aleria’s online platform, which has been built with a focus on privacy, confidentiality and anonymity. The ability to build a sense of safety and trust is key to Aleria’s approach to measuring inclusion. It is not possible for Aleria or anyone else to trace or identify workshop attendees who choose to participate in the activity, and no experiences are ever shared with anyone unless a participant specifically allows Aleria to do so.
