Make an ISACA Member Impact
With its dedication to strengthen and grow the cybersecurity field in a realm of ways, ISACA Global founded the nonprofit One In Tech to build diversity and inclusion. While One In Tech is a separate nonprofit from ISACA, we know that ISACA members are visionary leaders whose expertise and support is key to the success of the OIT mission. These initiatives are OIT-designed and not elements of ISACA Global, although One In Tech does collaborate with ISACA to engage ISACA members in various ways. In addition, the OIT member opportunities are different initiatives than those offered to chapters. The following are various areas of interest to members in which to participate and support One In Tech.
Learn with One In Tech
Just as ISACA provides CPEs for their educational program and volunteer roles, One In Tech also provides opportunities for members to gain CPEs through SheLeadsTech, Young Leaders In Tech, and WeLeadTech educational learning and volunteer engagement. CPEs are self reported, and One In Tech will issue proof of participation and, when applicable, a certificate of attendance. CPE earning is applicable for:
• Volunteering with One In Tech: Participate actively on a One In Tech working group or volunteer project and earn 1 CPE (up to 20 per year) for each hour of active participation.
• Attending One In Tech Educational Events: Participate/attend One In Tech webinars, conferences, and trainings to earn 1 CPE (up to 36 per year) for each hour of active participation.
For self-reporting CPEs, visit ISACA’s CPE page.
Volunteer with One In Tech
One In Tech engages ISACA members as well as others through volunteer opportunities to ensure that, together, we can move the needle forward toward diversity and equity. Volunteering your voice, outreach, and expertise are rewarding and powerful ways to make an impact. Members can volunteer with both ISACA and OIT separately, as programs are organization-specific. One In Tech will identify volunteer opportunities over time, some on a one-time basis and others on-going. Volunteer opportunities exist in OIT’s Young Leaders In Tech, SheLeadsTech, and soon-to-come WeLeadTech programs. Any volunteers from ISACA or other places can apply here.
Donate to One In Tech
One In Tech ‘s budget is entirely composed of philanthropic support. The scope of the programs are dependent on donations from individuals, businesses, other foundations, and others. Thus, donations from members directly contribute to ensuring cyber and tech fields are strong, innovative, and inclusive. Through donations, members can literally change the world. Member donations can be made online, by check, or by wire. Stock can also be donated.
ISACA Membership Renewal – added donation
ISACA members can support One In Tech via their membership renewal process. When members renew their membership, the online and mail-in forms ask if the member would like to donate to One In Tech. No amount of the ISACA membership fee is ever allocated to One In Tech, and any donation made comes directly supports OIT programs.
Support One In Tech
One way to support OIT is to hold a Community Event Fundraiser or donation drive such as a walk, a virtual party, or an online birthday celebration. OIT provides the Community Event Fundraiser Toolkit to help in the planning.
Member Outreach Advocate
This is a general role anyone can do and does not require sign-up or registration. Member Outreach Advocate is a title members can use to demonstrate their commitment to OIT’s mission. Although there is some integration (such as with SheLeadsTech Ambassador volunteers), the role Member Outreach Advocate is only applicable to OIT and is not affiliated with ISACA’s membership initiatives. OIT asks Outreach Advocates to:
1) follow our social media accounts;
2) repost/share the events, information, and impact through their own social media and personal outreach; and
3) stay updated about all of OIT mission and progress.
Many ISACA members are already Outreach Advocates, as they already are highly engaged and share OIT information on their own accounts. This role is just a way for ISACA members to, with the title “Member Outreach Advocate,” demonstrate their commitment to the mission of building diversity and inclusion. ISACA members can even list it on their LinkedIn! One In Tech is always available to support your outreach by request as well.
Chapter Diversity Advocates
Individuals can help support OIT by asking their own chapter to become a Chapter Diversity Advocate. Donations can be made online, or via ISACA chapter credits.
Corporate Diversity Advocates
Individuals can also support OIT by asking their own workplaces to contribute. Corporations and businesses can sponsor One In Tech via the Corporate Diversity Advocates program.
