For the fifth year in a row, Rapid7 is pleased to share that we've been included in the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index. The Gender Equality Index (GEI) recognizes publicly traded companies for being transparent in their commitment to gender equality. This includes how they score in areas such as talent pipeline and leadership, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, anti-harassment policies, and more. Inclusion in the GEI for 2023 recognizes our commitment to transparency while building a workplace that enables every person to have the career experience of a lifetime.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Rapid7

We know that diversity of backgrounds and mindsets help us close gaps in experience and spark innovation. A deep commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is core to the strength and success of our business. It empowers communities, makes our company healthier, and makes our customers more secure. It’s also, quite simply, the right thing to do.

Bring You is an initiative that builds on the focused efforts we started in 2018 to ensure that every employee—regardless of their ethnicity, gender, religion, or background—has the opportunity to thrive in their career and feel a sense of belonging within our community. More than just a set of goals, Bring You is using targeted investments to cultivate an increasingly diverse workforce as we continue to grow. While that overarching mission speaks to the essence of inclusion, Bring You highlights our focus on continuing to strengthen our gender and racial diversity in the organization in a measurable, impactful way.

In 2022, we celebrated the addition of three new employee resource groups, while bringing additional structure and resources to the existing three. The resource groups, referred to as our Rapid Impact Groups, are entirely driven by employees who serve as local leads, while being supported by the business. Today, these Rapid Impact Groups include:

  • Rapid7 Women: Supporting and advocating for women and female identifying individuals
  • Moose Mosaic: Supporting and advocating for our AAPI community
  • Moose Vets: Supporting and advocating for our veterans and former military community
  • Rapid7 Diversability and Neurodiversity: Aims to level the playing field by making the day-to-day experience of ALL employees equivalent in challenge level regardless of disability or neurodivergence
  • Rapid7 Pride: Supporting and advocating for our LGBTQIA+ community
  • Rapid7 Vibranium: Supporting and advocating for our Black and LatinX community

Looking Ahead

One of our core values is: Never Done. We will continue to be transparent about progress and push forward to create more inclusive environments, build a workforce that reflects all communities present in the world, and create a culture committed to educating ourselves to better empathize and support one another.

In 2023, we will continue to challenge ourselves, leaning into additional programming, creating new ways for employees to build cultural competency and investing in more tools so we can continue to build teams that are dynamic, innovative, and more effective in driving positive customer outcomes.

We value visibility and being included in surveys such as the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index, as it allows us to measure the progress on our journey and be accountable, as a responsible leader in the Cybersecurity space.
