Journeys Map Makes Connections and Sparks Innovation in San Diego

Author: Erin Tanner

We at Journeys Map are buzzing with excitement after a whirlwind of incredible events in our beautiful city. It’s been a journey (pun intended!), and we’re thrilled to share it with you!

The Power of Partnership!

A huge shout-out to our amazing partners at the Cyber Center of Excellence (CCOE)! Thanks to their connection, we were guests at the WiCyS San Diego career fair, setting up a booth to connect with participants and learn more about their aspirations in cybersecurity. The energy at the event was electric, with a strong focus on community and collaboration.

Inspiring Stories and Shared Journeys

The theme we heard most often at WiCyS? Transformation! People from all walks of life, with years of experience, were eager to explore how Journeys Map could support their pathways to fulfilling careers in cybersecurity. It was truly inspiring to see how our platform empowers users to connect their passions with purpose, ultimately shaping their dream futures.

Investing in the Future: A Day with CFF

We didn’t stop there! We also journeyed to the Classroom of the Future Foundation‘s 7th Annual College & Career Pathways Summit. This event was an enriching day filled with insightful discussions and valuable connections. We were especially grateful to see the unwavering support for our long-standing partner, the College Futures Foundation (CFF), and their dedication to advancing education in our community. Let’s not forget the excitement when we raffled off a brand new Apple Watch – congrats to the lucky winner!

Celebrating STEAM and the Future Leaders of San Diego!

Next, the San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering Expo Day was a blast for curious minds of tomorrow’s STEAM leaders! We proudly represented CCOE (Cyber Center of Excellence) at the College & Career EXPO, showcasing the Cyber Security portion of our map to the young minds that came through. We were excited to see the addition of the “College & Career” spaces, connecting students with higher education and industry partners. 

A Shared Vision for a Brighter Future

Every event we attended reinforced our core belief: community and collaboration are the cornerstones of innovation. Whether it’s empowering career transitions, nurturing a diverse tech workforce, or igniting a passion for STEAM, we’re all on this journey together.

Thank You, San Diego!

We’re so grateful for the opportunity to participate in these incredible events. A heartfelt thank you to all the organizers, volunteers, and participants who made them possible.

Stay tuned! We have even more exciting things planned for San Diego. Keep an eye out for upcoming events and partnerships!
