Pamela Bingham Cybersecure Growth Coach
Pamela's project management expertise comes from more than 25 years of experience addressing business and technology challenges across a range of anchor communities. Her specific expertise in mobilizing students of color began with her own experience growing up as the child of faculty members on the campus of Jackson State University. As an engineer who studied at the University of Florida, Pamela developed particular expertise in community engagement, comprehensive policy solutions, and defining detailed steps to meet the goals of each initiative. For example, Pamela worked on the massive challenges post-Hurricane Katrina, organizing African American engineers, students, and other professionals to aid the Gulf recovery. She moved to New Orleans for two years as a subcontractor for the Unified New Orleans Plan. Pamela provided technical assistance to local leaders; helped develop energy/environmental policy; and organized minority efforts in emergency preparedness and management for the Mid-Atlantic/Southern United States. In another role, she served six years as HBCU Geographic Information System (GIS) consortium lead for the National Medical Association's Bioterrorism Preparedness Grant Project Manager. Pamela is a Life Member of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE). She has a B.S. in industrial engineering from the University of Florida and a graduate certificate in business leadership development from Johns Hopkins University with additional study in environmental science and policy. By integrating engineering, technology, education, and effective collaboration, Pamela’s interdisciplinary approach empowers students from any major to strengthen the cybersecure growth of the anchor communities they serve.
