The Power of Side Hustles and Alliances: Finding your Tribe

November 16, 2020 – 12:45PM EST

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a unique and challenging opportunity to do business differently. Staying connected with your alliances “”whether it is professional organizations, side hustles that you were already working remotely, or simply your personal interests “”is so important to keep us in the game and to keep the important work of cybersecurity in the forefront.

Consider this: You belong to professional organizations; you have LinkedIn contacts and groups; you have other social media avenues. How do you continue to leverage these to create synergy to really make a difference? In this panel, we will talk about how we’ve been able to do this and provide insight on how others can create their own tribe.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the social phenomenon of stereotype threat and its impact on the gender and racial gap in cybersecurity.
  • Describe imposter syndrome and why this results in people avoiding or leaving cybersecurity pathways.
  • Recognize how side hustles and networked communities and alliances can help alleviate the effects of stereotype threat and the lack of sense of belonging.
