The Communities were formed as employee-led resource groups where employees with similar interests come together and actively engage and gather around a unifying mission of moving the McAfee mission forward. The creation of environments which are inclusive of diverse backgrounds and interests that our employees bring to the workplace is a competitive advantage. Although each is focused towards specific groups, they are open for all employees to join. When we value and respect each other for our unique perspectives, we can create the best solution for our customers, who also have different backgrounds, cultures, and beliefs.
There are currently six McAfee Communities: Women in Security, LGBTQ Community, Veterans Community, African Heritage Community, Bible-based Christian Community and Latino Community.
Welcoming our differences is a foundation of the company and it offers the opportunity for professional development, teamwork, volunteer activities, leadership skills, networking and cultural awareness. Making sure every employee feels comfortable being who they are at work and valued for their contributions is how we succeed with great business ideas influenced by our different backgrounds.
