MindPoint Group Diversity and Inclusion Statistics

A look at MindPoint Group’s corporate culture

In this blog, Davida Gray, MPG’s Director of Human Resources, discusses MindPoint Group’s employee diversity statistics and how they compare to national averages for our industry.

MindPoint Group History

In 2009, the partners—Patti, Marc, and Matt—saw an opportunity to create a business that focused on a common challenge shared by an ever-increasing number of teams and organizations: cybersecurity. Our partners were drawn together out of a desire to provide innovation and excellence to customers, but also to build a diverse and inclusive company for employees, a point that became the foundation for MPG’s beliefs and core values.

Today, MindPoint Group has grown to a thriving cybersecurity services firm, helping federal government, other public sector and commercial customers overcome the multitude of security challenges and ultimately adapt to the growing demands of today’s world.

We believe our success with customers comes from our collective capabilities, and our immense diversity: in ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, backgrounds, skills, and experiences. Ultimately, effective cybersecurity is a mixture of both people and technology. To be successful, teams need a strong emotional IQ. Our diversity helps drive this intelligence and the ability to work well with customer teams of all kinds.

MindPoint Group was recently recognized as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States in 2022. As we continue to expand, we’ve been asking ourselves some tough questions. Are we doing enough to eliminate barriers to diversity and inclusion? What more can we do to make sure that we continue to hire the best and most diverse people possible? What can we do to make sure that everyone at MPG feels welcome, included, and safe?

While there is no mandate to share our diversity information, we haven’t been shy in the past. Effective Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) programs, however, rely on us all getting out of our comfort zones. They rely on complete transparency.

MindPoint Group Demographics by the numbers

We collected data on ethnicity and gender, overall and in leadership, and found that MindPoint Group is highly diverse. We’re proud to have a strong mix of ethnic and racial diversity, with people of color comprising more than half of staff. MindPointGroup is led by our President, Patti Chanthaphone, one of Inc.’s top 200 female founders—and we employ women in high percentages across all levels of leadership. The success of MindPoint Group is in our people, and we believe our diversity makes us stronger together. Take a look at the data we collected—we think it speaks for itself.

This BLS data does not include Native Hawaiian, Alaska Native, or separate data for two or more races. MindPoint Group does include this in our data.

To align with federal reporting requirements, we have used EEO-1 categories. This categorization limits gender to male or female, which does not reflect our opinion. MindPoint Group believes gender is non-binary.

Non-White Leadership

Women in Leadership

To  look at how we compare to similar firms, we used the data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)under the “Professional & Business Services - Computer Systems Design and related services category, as we felt it most aligned with our business. Where appropriate data were not available from BLS, we used the 2022 McKinsey Women in the Workplace Report.

The future of MPG

MindPoint Group is focused on diversity and inclusion. This means continuing to look at our hiring practices, how we’re engaging with our community, and ways that we continue to encourage our employees to bring their “whole self” to work every day. We’re proud to be honored in the Washington Business Journal’s list of 25 most diverse companies in the greater D.C. area again in 2023, and we know there is plenty of room to grow.

We are committed to supporting diversity measures within the cybersecurity industry overall. MPG is one of the proud sponsors of CyberWire’s Women in Cybersecurity annual reception, and we are part of the Women in Technology association in DC. Supporting diversity and inclusion doesn’t just happen in the workplace—it is a key value in our networking, charitable outreach, and goals for the future. MindPoint Group strives to open doors of opportunity for others, speak to one another effectively, and make a difference. We look forward to encouraging a culture of transparency. If you’re interested in joining our team, let’s connect!
