New America launched our Women in Cybersecurity Project in 2015 to address the gender diversity gap in the field. That project has evolved into Humans of Cybersecurity, a media platform designed to elevate the stories of the people and ideas that are are changing our digital lives. Because we know from research that women and others from under-represented backgrounds tend to be more attracted to careers where a) they can see themselves and b) they see more clearly how the work will impact people and communities, we hope that these stories will serve as a kind of recruiting tool, illuminating stories in the field that buck conventional stereotypes.
