Global technology leader recognized by Great Place to Work and Fortune magazine as a top company for women in cybersecurity
AUSTIN, Texas, September 28, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CrowdStrike (Nasdaq: CRWD), a leader in cloud-delivered protection of endpoints, cloud workloads, identity and data, today announced its recognition as one of the Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine 2022 Best Workplaces for Women. This is CrowdStrike’s first time being named to this prestigious list, adding to the growing list of awards and recognition that CrowdStrike has recently garnered for its culture and leadership.
To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Great Place to Work analyzed the survey responses of over 640,000 women who work for Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies that employ at least 50 women. The Fortune Best Workplaces for Women list is the only company culture award in the United States that selects winners based on how fairly women say they’re treated at their workplace. Companies must also have at least 20 percent of non-executive managers who are women, and at least one executive who is a woman. In the Great Place to Work survey, 97% of CrowdStrike’s women said CrowdStrike is a great place to work.
"This recognition is a significant milestone that exemplifies our continuous efforts toward improving diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) – and toward closing the broader cybersecurity skills gap – in what is traditionally considered a male-dominated industry," said J.C. Herrera, chief human resources officer at CrowdStrike. "Our support for women inside and outside the CrowdStrike workforce starts at the top with leaders such as our General Counsel Cathleen Anderson, who paved the way to ensure women are represented and heard, and their needs are met across the organization. We’ve made tremendous strides in shifting the paradigm toward making our industry a better place for women, and there is always more work to be done. The women of CrowdStrike make extraordinary contributions toward defending our customers against breaches and building up CrowdStrike as one of the best companies in the business."
To more effectively support women in the cybersecurity industry, CrowdStrike established initiatives such as the NextGen Scholarship program to provide financial support and internship opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students studying cybersecurity and artificial intelligence, many of whom are women. CrowdStrike also regularly supports organizations such as Girls Who Code to further foster the next generation of female talent in STEM industries. Additionally, CrowdStrike established the employee group "Women of CrowdStrike" – founded and led by General Counsel Cathleen Anderson – to amplify and enable the progress of women in every step of their career by supporting, investing in and empowering the global community of women and their allies. Programs include content and activities to highlight and support the development and advancement of women, recruitment initiatives, networking opportunities, mentoring and professional development.
"Congratulations to the Best Workplaces for Women and their commitment to ensuring equity for women at every level of the organization," says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. "These companies showed up for women in new ways to help them cope with challenges they face wherever they are—both inside and outside of work. Women in these companies are seen, heard and valued."
