ISACA establishes One In Tech foundation

IT governance professional association ISACA has launched a new global foundation tasked with improving the participation of under-represented populations in the cybersecurity sector.

The One In Tech foundation will be supported by ISACA but operated independently, with the objective of advancing diversity and equality in technology.

The foundation will focus on three key programs including the current core SheLeadsTech program, which is focused on building gender diversity in the cybersecurity field.

Meanwhile the foundation will also introduce a Young Leaders in Tech program, which will offer programming education and training for primary and high school students.

This program, which will also introduce and provide guidance on career progression in the cybersecurity field, is being piloted in the US with the aim of expanding it to Australia and New Zealand.

Finally, the WeLeadTech program focuses on minority populations facing barriers to entering and advancing within the cybersecurity career pipeline.

One In Tech will provide resources and programs collaborating with ISACA’s certification programs to open opportunities and provide support for entering and advancing into these careers.

“It is so important to increase visibility around these issues of inequity in tech and to take real action to expand access and opportunities,” One In Tech Board Chair Gail Coury said.

“Together with private and public partners around the world, One in Tech will help drive meaningful progress for those who are under-represented.”
