Driving Meaningful Change at McAfee

Check out our Impact Report to learn more about our diversity progress and priorities, and how we're committing to building a culture where all can belong.

Our commitment

Protecting all that matters demands constant innovation. Doing our job well requires building a workplace that embraces individuality, encourages different perspectives, and welcomes a range of experiences to boost real innovation, creativity, and strategic problem-solving. But it’s not just the right thing to do for business—it’s about every person’s innate right to be their true self and belong.

Our approach

Our efforts to ensure an inclusive workplace fall in three areas: our ability to connect with top diverse talent, our desire to build a workplace where all employees can thrive, and our commitment to ignite change within our industry and community. Below are some examples of how we achieve our goals.
