Elevating diversity in cybersecurity with BlackGirlsHack Founder, Tennisha Martin

Leaders like Tennisha Martin, founder of BlackGirlsHack, are on a mission to help close the skills and diversity gap in cybersecurity - a key area that has been a focus for Adobe and the industry as a whole. BlackGirlsHack partners with Black girls and women to help them pursue careers in information security and cybersecurity - sharing skills training and mentorship opportunities. While their focus is advocating for Black women and girls, the organization is open to everyone.

BlackGirlsHack is a training-focused non-profit volunteer run organization that was created to help increase diversity in cybersecurity by bridging the gap between what is taught in educational institutions and what is necessary to build a strong foundation for careers in cybersecurity. Their vision is to provide resources, training, mentorship, and access to Black girls and women to increase representation and diversity in cybersecurity and executive roles.

When we focus on diverse recruiting, strong internship programs, training and professional development, we can make strong headway and start to cultivate the next generation of security leaders.
