In 2020, #ShareTheMicInCyber was launched as a volunteer movement aiming to build a more diverse and effective cybersecurity field. The volunteer #ShareTheMicInCyber movement became widely popular. This grant supports the formalization of #ShareTheMicInCyber as a program under New America. This will enable #ShareTheMicInCyber to establish a strategic approach and structure to this work, as well as to launch a new fellowship program offering training, certifications, and research support to a diverse group of fellows.
