Diversity in the workforce and equal treatment are prerequisites for any successful, modern organization. In the past year, Symantec has taken steps to ensure that its culture demonstrates diversity, equity and inclusion at every level of the organization. From company-wide surveys to launching an inclusion council and delivering a leader success module on diversity and inclusive leadership, the company has built a set of tools and practices to better prepare leaders and teams.
