Inclusionary Language on Eligibility

I am hoping someone can recommend to me the right communication path to request that the language on the "(ISC)² Candidate Background Qualifications" web page be modified to be more inviting to people who have lived under a different name for entirely legitimate reasons, such as being transgender or fleeing domestic abuse situations. I have heard from a couple of people that they have not pursued (ISC)² certifications because the current eligibility statement makes it sound like they are unwelcome.

 

Thanks,

-- Don

Not sure why I was labeled as a "Newcomer" - I have been a proud member of (ISC)² for 9 years.

"Newcomer" is supposed to be better than "Reader" which would have been your previous Community rank:

It's an automatic tag based on the number of posts that you've made. See:
https://community.isc2.org/t5/W/I/m-p/5381
I was really annoyed when I was tagged as a "Defender" because pretty much
everyone knows that there are many recent actions by ISC2 that I do not defend
*at all* 🙂
