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.


How we recruit and hire top diverse talent.

Hiring Practices
We apply best practices such as using more inclusive language in job descriptions, applying values-based behavioral interviewing, and ensuring diverse representation on hiring panels.

Return to Workplace
To assist people who have paused their careers to raise children, care for loved ones, or serve their country, our 12-week program offers the opportunity to re-enter the tech space.

We partner with organizations with shared interests such as Executive Women’s Forum, Grace Hopper Celebration, National Diversity Council, and Prospanica.


How we create an inclusive culture where you belong.

Communities & Council
Both employee-led McAfee Communities and our Diversity & Culture Council help drive our inclusion and diversity goals forward and ensure all perspectives are welcome.

Growth & Development
We offer development opportunities specific to women and underrepresented minorities through designated learning tracks and high-potential programs to build tomorrow’s leaders.

Inclusive Benefits
Everyone is empowered to live their best lives with access to inclusive benefits such as gender-neutral restrooms, fertility support, and breastfeeding support.


How we bring change to our industry & community.

Pay Parity
Through our annual compensation review, we’ve achieved gender pay parity across the company and continue to lead the way for the cybersecurity industry.

CEO Action
We joined the world’s largest CEO-driven coalition, CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, to collaborate with industry executives to advance workplace inclusion and diversity.

STEM Education
We fuel STEM interests with our job shadow program McAfee Explorers, McAfee Online Safety Program for Kids, and annual Bring Your Kids to Work event.

Through the McAfee Veterans Community, we create an inclusive environment for military veterans, family members, and supporters, help attract and retain the best military talent, and raise awareness on observances like 9/11 and Veterans Day.
