Brocade places a high value on the diversity of cultures, thought, expertise, and creativity that represents our customers and communities in the global marketplace. Our global workforce possesses a unique set of experiences and abilities that are critical to our success. Their passion for innovation helps us maintain our role as a technology leader, providing the best possible solutions for our customers.
Brocade's flagship diversity program is its Women In Networking (WIN) initiative. WIN is a learning community of Brocadians, both women and men, who promote an inclusive work environment where everyone has an opportunity to fully participate in creating business success and where each person is valued for her or his distinctive skills, experiences and perspectives.
The WIN initiative puts a particular spotlight on encouraging women in technology by providing mentoring opportunities, professional development, and other programs to build work/life skills, and a supportive environment for all our employees. WIN is also committed to encouraging young new talent by supporting programs that foster learning for girls in science, technology, engineering and math.
Sit With Me Campaign
Brocade joins hundreds of other high tech companies and individuals to support women in technology by participating in the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) Sit With Me Campaign. WIN Chapters around the globe are engaging Brocadians, business partners, new college hires and others in this important effort by having their picture taken in a red chair.
