Fortinet’s Education Outreach & Veterans Programs work with global leaders to drive change on pressing cybersecurity issues, in working with economically challenged, under-served, and underrepresented groups and individuals to launch, up-skill and re-skill their careers in cybersecurity. The need for diversity and inclusion in developing a skilled workforce remains a priority for those in the cybersecurity industry, which is facing a global workforce skills gap of approximately 3.4 million people. Fortinet’s Education Outreach and Veterans Programs are focused on closing this as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility goals, with a focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. This is accomplished through cultivating global partnerships such as with Blacks in Technology Foundation, to drive a skilled, inclusive, and diverse cybersecurity workforce.
