“Every day, we make the choice to invest in the next generation because it makes sense to promote the expansion of talent in our industry,” said Optiv CEO Kevin Lynch. “If we believe in the power of diversity, we all have a responsibility to invest in all our communities. This is the first in a sequence of choices Optiv is making to shape our company, and our industry, to one more representative of our society. I remain proud of our organization for striving for a future in which this isn’t newsworthy and for embracing a path where the work required to achieve that future is welcome.”
Optiv’s Black Employee Network is entirely employee driven and part of the company’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiative.
“I am proud to work for a company that recognizes the importance of diversity and is taking concrete steps to increase the number of Black cybersecurity professionals,” said Noland Perrilloux, Optiv’s Black Employee Network committee chair. “Our hope is these scholarships will allow more Black/ African American students to pursue their dream of becoming a cybersecurity practitioner.”
“Studies have shown that diversity improves organizational performance across the board,” said Jill Sanford, Optiv’s CHRO, “so the industry lacking diversity is not only a moral failing but is bad for business. I am very excited Optiv is putting resources toward improving an issue that has plagued the industry since its inception.”
