KnowBe4 #GirlsClub Scholarship

Empowering More Women to Earn Roles in Leadership

Our Mission for Women

KnowBe4, the provider of the world's largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, is used by tens of thousands of organizations around the globe. KnowBe4 enables organizations to manage the ongoing problem of social engineering by helping them train employees to make smarter security decisions, every day.

At KnowBe4, we strive to be a leader in diversity, equity, and inclusion, which is why we can say our team is over 40% women, while the industry average is only 20%! We empower our women by providing professional development tools, benefits that allow employees to balance their work and personal lives, and an employee resource group dedicated to our women Knowsters in the technology space.


KnowBe4 is partnering with #GirlsClub to sponsor two women a year to join #GirlsClub’s certification and networking program.

This sales-focused program includes six months of leadership training, sales mentorship, networking opportunities with other women in sales, and a certification upon completion of the program.
