In this webcast, Donna Milgram will show you how two schools boosted female (and male) enrollments in Cybersecurity and IT programs after attending a WomenTech Educators Training, and how you can apply these techniques to boost (and retain) similar enrollments in your programs:

  • Fayetteville Technical Community College doubled female enrollment in their Cybersecurity program in only 5 months - from 12 to 22 women. Male enrollment also increased from 58 to 101
  • Broward College increased female enrollment in their IT & Computer Science Department (including Cybersecurity) - by 77 women in a year’s time. Male enrollment also increased from 751 to 1009

Donna Milgram has dedicated her career to helping women succeed in fields that have been traditionally dominated by men. Ms. Milgram has been a Principal Investigator on five National Science Foundation (NSF) grants. She presented at the CyberSmart Summit: North America’s Only Cybersecurity Skills & Workforce Development Summit 2019, in Canada; she was part of a small group selected to participate in the Women in Cybersecurity Roundtable: sponsored by New America and the National Initiative on Cybersecurity Education (NICE) in 2018; and in 2018, conducted a webinar on Recruiting Women to Cybersecurity for National Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week for NICE.

Do you know any colleagues who might be interested in joining to learn how to recruit women to Cybersecurity educational programs? We've found schools are most effective in bringing about change when they come as a team. We’d like to support them as well with this free event. The more members of your school or team that join us, the more likely you can bring about change!
