In this webcast, Donna Milgram will show you how two schools boosted female (and male) enrollments in Cybersecurity and IT programs after attending a WomenTech Educators Training, and how you can apply these techniques to boost (and retain) similar enrollments in your programs:

  • Fayetteville Technical Community College doubled female enrollment in their Cybersecurity program in only 5 months - from 12 to 22 women. Male enrollment also increased from 58 to 101
  • Broward College increased female enrollment in their IT & Computer Science Department (including Cybersecurity) - by 77 women in a year’s time. Male enrollment also increased from 751 to 1009

National Drive Electric Week is a nationwide celebration to raise awareness of the many benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. They are fun to drive, are less expensive and more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, are better for the environment, promote local jobs, and reduce the dependence on foreign oil. Are you considering going electric? Come talk to owners who have successfully done so!

Each year, National Drive Electric Week includes hundreds of events in communities across the United States and around the world. This year, the 10th annual National Drive Electric Week will be adding online events for the first time, including the NDEW Kick-Off Event event on Sep 24, 2020.

The 2020 Autonomous Capabilities for DoD Summit will provide a “town-hall” style forum to discuss the advanced capabilities that AI-enabled autonomous systems and machine learning provide to the Warfighter in the battlespace, and how these emerging technologies are bolstering current and future DoD efforts to achieve mission impact at scale. The Summit will focus on current initiatives being enacted to leverage the flexibility that autonomous capabilities can provide the Warfighter in the future fight, both to facilitate the DoD’s strategy of developing technologically superior weapons systems to further compete in the Great Power competition, and to outpace adversaries who will also utilize artificial intelligence and other means to their advantage.

Topics to be covered at the 2020 Summit:

  • Driving the development of technologically superior weapons systems with autonomous capabilities across the DoD
  • Accelerating DoD’s adoption and integration of AI and autonomy to achieve mission impact at scale
  • Leading the Continued Adoption of AI as the Key to Army Modernization
  • Facilitating the USAF strategy to implement varying levels of AI for mission success
  • Empowering the Commanders, Marines and Sailors ability to be more adaptive and resilient in highly contested environments using AI and autonomy
  • Utilizing innovative and disruptive AI/Machine Learning technologies to bolster Army’s Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS)
  • Considering the ethical and technical challenges during the development of autonomous systems

The Centers of Academic Excellence (CAE) in Cybersecurity Community is hosting the fourth annual CAE Virtual Career Fair (VCF), sponsored by the National Cybersecurity Training and Education (NCyTE) Center and the National Science Foundation (NSF). The virtual career fair is unique in that CAE invite students/alumni from 300+ institutions designated as CAEs in Research (CAE-R), Cyber Defense Education (CAE-CDE), and Cyber Operations (CAE-CO) to participate. Institutions receive the CAE in Cybersecurity designation after meeting the rigorous requirements of the program set forth by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The standards set forth by the NSA/DHS curriculum guidelines also ensure students from CAE institutions receive a quality cybersecurity education that prepares them for a career in the cyber workforce.
