About Us


CyberSecurity GameChangers was started with the mission to bring diversity to the Cybersecurity industry and to proactively address the talent gap.  We have the privilege of serving our community as a 501c3 nonprofit program. Partnering with local and national STEM programs, we have the resources & volunteer structure to provide students & parents with the pathways needed to Educate, Motivate, and Deliver our NextGen into careers that will ‘Change the Game’ for them & their family dynamics. 


Founding principles: 

  • Servant Leadership:  To whom much is Given, much is Required

  • Build interest and talent early in STEM and Cybersecurity

  • Self-Knowledge:  You have the POWER to make a difference Now!

  • Promote an environment of Continuous Learning and Improvement

  • Engagement and Outreach from the Corporate community

Our Symposium events feature industry experts and guest speakers from local, national and international colleges and organizations. Symposiums include SecKidHero & Super Hero (professionals) awards, exhibits, presentations, contests and scholarship opportunities!  Students and parents have a chance to talk one-to-one with local cybersecurity professionals and businesses during our career path networking and mentor meet-ups.

Vice Chair/Community Relations

Ms. Kimberly a.k.a “KJ” Haywood grew up knowing she was very different from her female peers, yet she didn’t care.  The teasing and bullying really didn’t bother her. The majority of the time she was able to manage to defend herself with words.

I’d rather be in a room full of students!  I launched ‘GameChangers’ after a 15+ year career of Consulting, Training and Leadership experience in CyberSecurity, Privacy, and Risk Management and a strategic advisor to multiple CISOs, Executives, and Nonprofit Boards.  Now in addition to my very rewarding career, I get to hang around some of the most promising students our future has to offer!
