“I want people to be proud of who they are. Being a woman in tech, I had to stand up and use all aspects of my character to get the job done — it has made all the difference to my career and to my life. None of us is perfect, no one needs to be. I am lucky enough to work with an incredible global team of people who actively seek to protect the world. This means my team and I can make a real difference every day, which I love." — Audra Simons, Senior Director, G2CI Global Products, Forcepoint

Supporting a diverse and collaborative community.

To help ensure that their teams are connected and there for one another, Forcepoint provides a platform called ForcepointGo, which is a place to find internal communications, news and announcements. ForcepointGo has an entire channel dedicated to celebrating global & diverse cultural holidays, milestones impacting communities, and moments where Forcepoint’s culture shines bright. ForcepointGo is loaded with shareable social media content so everyone at Forcepoint can play a part in being a strong brand ambassador. 

This resource underscores how Forcepoint is more than just a workplace — they are a community.

And, as a community, Forcepoint emphasizes the importance of DE&I in everything they do. Among their many Inclusion & Diversity initiatives is the stand-up of their first formal ERG — Women in Tech. The group’s mission statement is to empower the female perspective through collaborative questions, discussions and solutions to build a community of belonging and support that improves their shared experiences. Everyone is welcome, because a strong ERG is made up of those within the community – and those that serve as advocates for the community.

Benefits that we think you’ll love.

In addition to their inclusivity-first culture, Forcepoint supports a work-life blend through a fully hybrid work environment, with the company emphasizing that many jobs can be done 100% remotely. In addition to this, Forcepoint also offers flexible PTO to U.S. employees, and all full-time and part-time employees are allotted 20 hours of volunteer PTO per year. This is done to foster a culture of community within Team Forcepoint through volunteering with organizations that support health and human services, education and the environment.
