Pride Month Profile – Lauren Rapkin

CA Technologies is celebrating Pride Month by spotlighting a few of our amazing employees from the LGBTQ Community.

Meet Lauren Rapkin, Senior Event Planner. Lauren is a remote employee working from her home Maryland, where she begins each day with coffee and a morning walk with her puggle, Bailey.

Lauren’s career journey with CA started four years ago when CA acquired Layer 7 and she was promoted into her current position. In her role, Lauren strategizes, plans and executes all types of events CA hosts or participates in, including tradeshows, conferences, workshops, customer advisory boards and, of course, CA World. Earlier this year, she completed our Leadership Development Program (LDP), a year-long program targeting leaders at all levels.

“I love that each day is different. Since I work on many different types of events, most days include collaboration with different teams and departments. Some weeks travel is required, which I enjoy!”

Bring What You Bring

Outside of work, Lauren enjoys photography, crafting, and building things. She says this naturally enables her to think outside of the box and come up with unique solutions.

“Creating memorable face-to-face experiences is what I do. I want customers to walk away from an event feeling a connection to CA, understanding that we can work with you to solve your business challenges.”

We asked Lauren about her experience with CA as a member of the LGBT community.

“It’s always been extremely important to me to work for a company that aligns with my own personal values. I got married two years ago and the team threw me a bridal shower, so sweet! I’ve always felt very comfortable being me. Having the respect and support from CA fuels my drive, I WANT to go the extra mile.”

What about CA benefits?

“CA has generous benefit plans, including fertility coverage and adoption assistance. This can be extremely helpful for LGBT couples looking to start a family.”

What would Lauren say to a member of the LGBT community considering a career with CA Technologies?

“Join our team! This is a place where we work hard, smart and are challenged to break barriers. CA has made diversity and inclusion a priority.”

Pride Month Profile – Meghan Stabler

We continue to celebrate LGBTQ Pride Month by spotlighting a few of our amazing employees from the LGBTQ Community.

Meet Meghan Stabler, Advisor, Business Unit Strategy.

Meghan originally started working for CA in the 90s, left to join another company, then rejoined CA in 2010, which she jokingly refers to as her “second tour of duty” with CA. Meghan works from her home office in a town just north of Austin, TX, where she says the views from the three windows in her workspace “bring a smile to my face every day.” She enjoys the collaboration of her teammates and other CA employees.

“I get to work with some absolutely great people, inspiring leaders and motivated team members. That helps me bring passion to what we do. I love it!”

We asked Meghan to describe her role at CA.

“I’m working to ensure our CEO Renewal message and value proposition is front and center, internally and externally. My core objective, along with other members of Trevor Bunker’s Lifecycle Management team, is to ensure our customers extract maximum value realization from their product investments with CA.”

LGBTQ Equality

As a transgender woman, Meghan has been a leading member of the LGBTQ community and has worked extensively for LGBTQ equality for more than two decades in the workplace, military service and society. She has advocated for the repeal of the U.S. military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, worked tirelessly for marriage equality, and has even testified before the U.S. Congress and many state houses to ensure workplace non-discrimination laws include sexual orientation and gender identity protections.

“If we are only authentic at home and not at work, then we are only bringing a part of ourselves to our job,” says Meghan.

Meghan praises CA for their inclusive policies.

“CA has been a great champion for our LGBTQ causes and internally has many benefits that cover LGBTQ employees, couples and their families. That is something to be proud of!”

What would Meghan say to a member of the LGBT community considering a career with CA Technologies?

“CA is the right choice. If you are looking for an inclusive, safe and welcoming workplace, where you can bring your authentic self and skills to help transform customer businesses, then CA is the place.”
