Herndon, Va. – September 16, 2021 – Expel, the cybersecurity company whose mission is to make great security as accessible as the internet, was named by Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE to the 25 Best Small and Medium Workplaces for Women list.

According to Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE, “To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Great Place to Work® analyzed confidential survey feedback representing more than 5.6 million U.S. employees.”

“At Expel, we recognize the importance of a work environment that actively supports and encourages women through all stages of their careers. We want all women at Expel to feel seen, heard and appreciated as they bring their full selves to work every day because that realness is essential for our success,” said Amy Rossi, chief people officer at Expel. “At Expel, we’re continuously working to address biases and inequity, understand and support the different needs and experiences of all of our Expletives, and nurture a culture of inclusivity and belonging. And if you’d like other perspectives on what it’s like to be a woman at Expel, keep reading to hear from a few of the inspiring women I get to work with each day.”

“As a growing company, we interview a lot of candidates,” said Mimi Jacobs, VP, product management at Expel. “Through the process, female candidates are so motivated to meet impressive, authentic, friendly women, especially in manager and leadership positions. They need to be able to see themselves in them. As a leader, I’m so happy that I don’t have to try to fit into some cookie-cutter mold of what a leader should be. When you aren’t spending a bunch of energy trying to be someone else – it frees you up to be the best version of yourself – there’s a lot of power in that.”

“Expel is a company that truly values diversity, equality and inclusion,” said Kareema Price, senior recruiter at Expel. “It’s the first company I’ve worked at where buy-in from the leadership team to support DE&I wasn’t even necessary. They understand how important it is to have a diverse workforce, and as a recruiter (and a person of color) this makes all the difference in the world when recruiting candidates. I’m truly blessed to work for such an amazing company.”

“Expel is the first place I’ve worked where creating an Employee Resource Group for women goes beyond the superficial,” said Kindra Cantrell, senior content and communications manager at Expel. “We have the hard and important conversations. And we do it with empathy and with an inclusive mindset. What matters most is that, at the end of the day, we’re safe to bring our whole selves to work. All of us.”
