Cyber Diversity & Inclusion
Diversity is the range of human differences, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, social class, physical ability or attributes, religious or ethical values system, national origin, and political beliefs.
Inclusion is involvement and empowerment, where the inherent worth and dignity of all people are recognized. An inclusive cybersecurity workforce readiness program sustains a sense of belonging; it values and practices respect for the talents, beliefs, backgrounds, and ways of living of its members.
Connecting Industry to Education brings immediate job driven relevance to both STEM and Career & Technical Education (CTE). The Minority Technology Industry holds an important key to the success of our nation.
National Conference Series
Fueled by our nation's focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and U.S. competitiveness, Career and Technical Education (CTE) is emerging as a systematic platform for education-industry collaboration and exploration. Our Discover STEM-CTE District event "roadshow" provides career options to members of those communities currently disenfranchised to our growing economy.
Minority secondary and post-secondary students need to complete their education and find meaningful careers. Industry and government are both needing highly skilled workers for opportunities now unfilled. It is necessary for us to forge new and active partnerships to bridge this gap.
The Discover STEM-CTE National Conference Series brings together Tech company employers (including our fast growing minority technology owners and corporate diversity and HR executives), industry subject matter experts, university faculty and government leaders with students, parents, teachers and school administrators all working to imagine a better future.
The Council Excahange Board of Trade’s Looking Forward Research & Development Program has developed a new look at the convergence between STEM and Career and Technical Education. Our “STEM is in Everything” approach builds relevance and innovation to the career decision making process.
Our belief is industry works best in concert with government and inclusion is the only escape from the economic crisis found in the heart of our most urban centers across the US.
We are expecting stakeholder involvement and will facilitate inter-agency, inter-state participation to bring greater cost-effectiveness, economies of scale, access to external resources and greater political influence through strength in numbers.
The Council Exchange Board of Trade will coordinate activities with multiple stakeholders across the country to ensure students have a chance to learn about 21st Century high-growth, high-demand job opportunities.
Our recommendation for public/private cooperative agreements to carry out this important work is based on the many federal, state, and local mandates to better educate our nation's populace on the importance of career exploration in STEM and CTE careers.

CEBOT Community Program Highlights
SMART HBCU CYBER APPRENTICESHIPS
All SMART HBCU apprenticeship programs include a key classroom or related training and instructional component to help students develop skills and earn a certified credential that is recognized industry-wide. The educational component meets business needs and prepares the apprentice for a successful career. Program targets high school and post-secondary students with a focus on HBCU and MSI students located across the united states.
Join the discussion around the future of education and learning in the 21st century. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and CTE (Career and Technical Education) converge with the ICT (Information, Communications & Technology) workforce. Optimizing partnerships and collaboration requires strategic engagements and research.
The National Minority Technology Council has developed a 10 year Design Based Research program (AIEFrame.org) to capture stakeholder input to assist in education program design and implementation. Participants will be able to provide insight according to their subject matter expertise.
Cyber-chain Workforce Readiness
Filling the Workforce Shortage of Qualified Cybersecurity and Blockchain Professionals
Cybersecurity is emerging as an identifiable discipline, a meta-profession, that encompasses many sub-fields that form the modern computing ecosystem.
The Executive Chairman of the Council Exchange Board of Trade serves on the NICE working committee on Industry and Apprenticeship.
As an industry CEBOT is working to inform both government and academia on policy, workforce and curricular frameworks and application areas like procurement and research.
The Council Exchange Board of Trade (CEBOT) has partnered with our stakeholder members to meet the workforce demand across the spectrum of application areas. CEBOT is conducting research to define new curriculum concentrations based on the specific demands identified by our member employers.
As an industry we represent thousands of business owners who are both practitioners and hiring managers for cyber security. Cybersecurity is not a profession that one professional body can encompass and our role as a professional association is to provide leadership, ethics and good practices as an independent body.
As a governing body CEBOT's organizational focus is on building a supply of professional cybersecurity practitioners that adhere to a standard of professional competence, continuous learning and ethics. We believe in an informed public and take extra care to reach out to those who are disenfranchised in order to ensure the cybersecurity profession is inclusive.

NMTC's Looking Forward Research & Development program office has established a Career and Technical Education research initiative called CENTERVATE (Center for Innovation and CTE Research).
This applied research works to discover best methods and excellence in Middle School and High School Certification and skill building programs. As an industry partner, NMTC is actively working with multiple school systems around the nation to ensure teachers and students are prepared for the 21st Century.
The Center for Innovation and CTE Research provides research on skill based careers in the technology industry.
