Synopsis:

In the ever-evolving field of cybersecurity, the demand for skilled and diverse professionals is constant. Blind and deaf or hard of hearing individuals, often overlooked, bring exceptional skills, diverse perspectives, and a keen ability to excel in this critical domain. This webinar will highlight the value that blind and deaf or hard of hearing talent can bring to the workforce and the ways education and training providers can accommodate these individuals to equip them with in-demand skills. Whether you are an employer looking to diversify your talent pool or a blind or hard of hearing individual aspiring to a career in cybersecurity, this webinar offers invaluable insights and actionable advice. Join us ahead of National Disability Employment Awareness Month to celebrate the contributions of blind and deaf or hard of hearing learners as we explore how embracing diversity can lead to a more secure and innovative digital future.
