The 100 Women 100 Days Program addresses some industry-wide cybersecurity issues like the gender gap and talent shortage. The program is designed from a hiring managers perspective so participants can prepare to enter the cyber workforce with confidence and competency, minimizing the skills gap and diversifying the predominantly male-populated industry. Unlike other programs, 100 Women in 100 Days includes training for desired industry certifications, so students can hit the ground running on day one of employment. It will offer hands-on workshops facilitated by local cybersecurity experts, giving students the opportunity to get a firsthand understanding of what is expected knowledge in a real cyber job. The 100 Women in 100 Days Cybersecurity Career Accelerator Program will provide a comfortable environment for female students to learn and advance in cyber skills at a higher rate than if they were in the class setting. This female-focused learning environment also benefits companies that are strategically hiring more women technologists, as studies have shown they perform better than their male counterparts in similar positions.
"We are very excited to partner with Circadence because of its platform's ability to provide additional simulated hands-on experience to our program's participants,"
