SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--McAfee announces today its recognition as an inclusive workplace by Diversity Best Practices (DBP), a division of Working Mother Media. McAfee was among the 98 organizations that earned a place on the fourth annual Inclusion Index.
“We’re honored to be named and extremely proud of our progress in creating a sense of belonging within McAfee. While it’s critical to our business, it’s also innate to who we are as a company,” said Chatelle Lynch, chief people officer, McAfee. “Each time we accomplish a milestone, you’ll hear us say that our work is not done – and today is no exception.

This year, 185 organizations participated in the Diversity Best Practices Inclusion Index, a 25 percent year-over-year increase. The index helps organizations understand trends and gaps in demographic representation, creates a road map to drive internal change, and identifies diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) solutions to close the gaps.
To create the index, organizations provided data to Diversity Best Practices and were measured in three key areas: best practices in the recruitment, retention and advancement of people from underrepresented groups—women, racial/ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ+ people; inclusive corporate culture, including leadership accountability; and demographic diversity for women and racial/ethnic minorities.
“Diversity, equity and inclusion continues to be a topic of critical importance, especially in these times of heightened racism and social injustice,” says Deborah Munster, vice president, Diversity Best Practices. “The good news is that corporate America is paying closer attention to its D&I practices, and I am proud to recognize the work our Inclusion Index companies are doing to elevate their efforts to drive a more equitable future.”
