During the month of March, we’re excited to support International Women’s Day (March 8) and Women’s History Month. At McAfee, we recognize the power of an inclusive and diverse culture and are proud to celebrate the achievements of our trailblazing female colleagues worldwide. And of course, no group is more passionate about doing so than our Women in Security (WISE) Community.

WISE is a global network committed to supporting the growth, empowerment, and success of women at McAfee. As part of this year’s International Women’s Day call to action, our WISE community are leading by example and sharing their own #PressForProgress moments to help inspire and encourage others in their careers.

See some of the examples below and submit your own #PressForProgress moments in the comment box below!

“Each day, I have the unique opportunity to #PressForProgress through the Cork GROW program, where I teach the techniques I learned from Personal Management Coaching courses I attended at UCC.
