Salute! Veterans Program
Salute! is RaiseMe’s support effort especially for veterans and active military
support with transitioning to civilian careers in Information Security.
In-person conferences have held a Veteran’s Panel, onsite networking events,
and registration discounts and scholarships. Due to COVID-19, RaiseMe will be
hosted in the cyberspace domain at ShellCon this year. And like our great
country, it’s free!
Veteran speakers representing different service branches are in the RaiseMe
lineup of talks this year. Look in their biographies for those details. They
will be available during and after their talks for Q&A, and will be glad to
provide insight on how their experiences as veterans affected their career
Consulting Appts with Veteran Mentors
We have a team of veterans on our consulting staff, and you can specifically
request appointments with them during the conference. You can look for them in
the speaker descriptions in the consulting Appointment Request Form. Or, jump
into the RaiseMe Salute! Discord channel and ask for referrals.
Salute! Discord Channel
Veterans have a dedicated channel in the RaiseMe Career Hall on Discord. This
is a place where they can share experiences and support each other in their
careering journeys. Also, it’s a good place to ask about previously recorded
Salute! talks they might find helpful. If you have a specific topic you’d
like to see addressed in a future Salute! talk, drop by and make the suggestion.
This year, our conference is online and free to attendees. So instead of
registration scholarships, we are offering scholarships to veterans who want to
attend our ShellCon U trainings during the year, up until the next annual
ShellCon conference in 2022. For more information, DM @ShellConLA.
