Today, we publish our annual Impact Report. In our 2021 report, we highlight initiatives and share stories about our progress in creating a more inclusive workplace, supporting our communities, and protecting the planet.
Reflecting on 2021, it’s easy to see it was a monumental year for McAfee. Our business underwent an incredible transformation — we divested our Enterprise business and McAfee emerged as a worldwide leader for online protection, empowering individuals and families to live a safer life online. We also kicked off our journey to become a privately held company.
Our strides toward a better future
As we accelerate our journey as a dedicated consumer business and I evaluate our strides since our first report in 2018, I am humbled by our progress. In the last year, we’ve seen our representation for women reach 30.9% overall and for underrepresented professionals reach 14.8 percent. In addition, we’ve seen a 40% increase in the proportion of women promoted to director and above in the last year.
We maintained pay parity for women globally and underrepresented professionals in the U.S with our most recent audit revealing no disparities. We rolled out a new inclusion and awareness training and were recognized as the best company for multicultural women and dads. We prioritized our people’s well-being with a rollout of the Calm app, fitness challenges, and a week focused on wellness.
All the while, McAfee rose to meet the increased needs of our community with laptop donation programs and employee giving campaigns. We also made progress for sustainability redefining how and where we work.
The opportunities ahead to do better
However, it’s not lost on me that 2021 followed a year fraught with challenges that didn’t disappear with the end of 2020. And today, we continue to live and work against the backdrop of a global pandemic, respond to acts of racial injustice, and hear undeniable lived experiences of hate and intolerance.
It’s fueled our desire to do better. We know there is so much work to do and our responsibility to create an equitable workplace and world has never been greater. It’s the right thing to do and a business imperative—we rely on the fresh ideas and unique perspectives of the people of McAfee. Truthfully, it’s their tenacity and resiliency that inspire me.
Whether it’s showing up for one another during a COVID-19 surge, asking for more resources to become a better ally, or rallying around each other to prioritize health, our people are exceptional.
As we progress in 2022, grow as a consumer-focused business, and welcome our new President and CEO Greg Johnson, we will have the opportunity to take all we’ve learned and help turn our aspirations into reality. We will invest in our people, our community, and our planet, but also ask what we can do better.
I invite you to read our 2021 Impact Report to see our progress and our commitment.
