Rachel and Cora are cyber security executives for a large global bank. In their current jobs, they
each recognized a gender imbalance in their field and discussed the benefits of a non-profit
organization focused on increasing awareness of and exposure to cybersecurity for female
students from middle school through collegiate age. They focused on this specific demographic given all the research that points to the fact that this age range is typically where female interest in STEM subjects dramatically declines.
When they shared their idea and thoughts with their colleague and friend Regina, they quickly realized how her passion and active efforts in encouraging young women to cultivate an interest in STEM subjects aligned so well to their vision for this organization.
From there, Project Cyber was born and the dynamic trio have been working hard at closing the gender gap in the field of cybersecurity, one female at a time.
