Symantec Joins Call for Federal LGBT Non-Discrimination Legislation


Today, Symantec signed on to support the Equality Act, a comprehensive federal LGBT non-discrimination legislation, that would provide the same basic protections to LGBT people as are provided to other protected groups under federal law. The landmark bill introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives last week helps protect against discrimination of LGBT people by expanding civil rights protections around hiring and firing.

Cutting Edge: Transforming Our Future with Innovation

By Lily De Los Rios, Symantec's VP, Engineering

Computer programming jobs are growing at two times the national average, and by 2020 there will be 1.4 million computing jobs. However, by that same five year time period, there will only be 400,000 computer science students. At that rate, there will be 1 million more jobs than students by 2020. This is a concerning statistic that not only impacts our students’ futures, but also our company and our global economy.

Celebrating Pride Month as an LGBT Ally & Advocate

Pat Padilla, Symantec's Associate Sales Operations Specialist

My journey as an LGBT ally and advocate began some years ago, after conversations with a gay co-worker, with whom I traveled extensively for work. We had been traveling together for years, and I was oblivious to his sexual identity until he came out to me, about six years into our trips. I realized that he was the first gay person I had met (or rather the first to come out to me) and how unaware I was concerning the struggles and inequality faced by the LGBT community and their loved ones.
