Women’s Initiatives at Palo Alto Networks®
- Our Women’s Networking Community provides career development, inspiration and networking opportunities for women at Palo Alto Networks® and in the Silicon Valley community. The Women’s Networking Community, which is more than 300 members strong (and growing), was founded by senior female leaders across the company and is focused on building a community that supports and fosters the growth of women by connecting, inspiring, educating, and encouraging them to become their best self through personal and professional development, networking and community involvement.
- Palo Alto Networks® and the Girl Scouts of The United States of America have teamed up to deliver the first-ever national cybersecurity badges for girls in grades K-12. In September 2018, cybersecurity education will be introduced to millions of girls across the U.S. through programming designed to increase their interest in security and instill a valuable 21st century skillset.
- Through our ongoing and growing partnership with the Anita Borg Institute, we annually sponsor the Grace Hopper Celebration, the world's largest gathering of women technologists. With over 15,000 attendees, the event provides opportunities to support the career development of our employees as well as meet some of the best talent in the industry.
