At Rapid7, we celebrate people bringing diverse perspectives to the table as we work together to help create a secure digital future for everyone.
Diversity of backgrounds and mindsets help us close gaps in experience and spark innovation. A deep commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is core to the strength and success of our business. It empowers our communities, makes our company healthier, and makes our customers more secure. It’s also, quite simply, the right thing to do. Not just for us, but for the advancement of our industry and our world. This is why we are building a place where everyone feels welcome to be their authentic selves.
From the ways we’re reimagining the makeup of our teams at our new offices, to our ambitious Diversity, Equity & Inclusion goals for the year ahead, read our 2022 Social Good Report for a detailed look at how we’re building opportunities for those that the cybersecurity community often overlooks.
We’re committed to bringing together people from different backgrounds and investing in programs that nurture pathways for the future talent of our tech community. This commitment is fueled by two of our core values: Be an Advocate and Bring You . We advocate for customers, underrepresented groups, and one another, to create a more connected and collaborative experience for all; and we want every person to feel empowered to embrace their own uniqueness and feel comfortable bringing their true self to work.
We refer to our people at Rapid7 as Moose, a word that remains unchanged in both its singular and plural forms. It’s one of the many ways we work to build an internal sense of camaraderie and community. We’re one Moose and proud of the diverse perspectives that strengthen our herd.
Here are some notable initiatives helping to make Rapid7 a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive home for every Moose.
Over the course of their first 18 months as full-time employees, recent graduates known as rotatoes rotate onto a range of teams at Rapid7, broadening their skills and building connections with a diverse array of people across the organization. Upon completion, these new Moose are placed into permanent, non-rotating positions where they're poised to succeed thanks to the relationships they've built over their time in the program.
To systematically improve the diversity and strength of our industry, we’re making investments that create opportunities for those that may not otherwise pursue STEM related jobs. We work together with schools, universities, and other groups globally to fuel STEM interest in youth from under-served communities, providing support and guidance in the form of donations, volunteer work, mentoring, and education.
We know that a commitment to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive work culture extends far beyond any metrics—we also believe there’s value in setting measurable goals and being transparent about what our company looks like today.
In a largely white and male industry, Rapid7 hopes to create a gold standard and clear blueprint that all of cybersecurity can look to as we work together to empower the diverse workforce of the future.
In the months and years ahead, we’ll keep pioneering new ways to empower people. We’ll never stop holding ourselves accountable as we transform the makeup of our industry to better reflect our customers and communities.
