Our goal is to provide a relevant, actionable learning experience for members of all levels, from Cyber majors to seasoned CISOs. Current and prospective NYC Metro chapter members will:
1) Learn why mentoring matters, and specifically, the value of mentoring for advancing diversity in cybersecurity.
2) Hear from a Cyversity mentor and mentee about their mentoring relationship and what made it successful.
3) Conduct an open-mic forum to share personal experiences and industry leading practices for mentors and mentees. Discuss our chapter-wide “Thank Your Mentor Day” campaign to run Jan 27.*
*Our Jan meeting is themed in recognition of National Mentoring Month.
