Our Commitment to Diversity

At VMware, we are committed to an effective supplier diversity program that demonstrates measureable improvement, is consistent with contractual expectations of our clients, and aligns with key industry objectives. 

This corporate commitment extends to the sourcing of all goods and services throughout our supply chain that create opportunities for more diverse businesses. In partnership with our diverse suppliers, we will continue to contribute to long-term economic sustainability in the communities where we live and work.

Mission and Vision

VMware is committed to providing opportunities to a supplier base as diverse as the communities where we live, work and serve. We will strive to actively seek contract opportunities with diverse suppliers who meet our high standards for products and services. 

 

Our Supplier Diversity Initiative

We are committed to diversity in all aspects of our organization. We embrace diversity through our employees, our suppliers and partners we work with, our customers, and the communities in which we work and live. 

 

Our Supplier Diversity initiative encompasses all of VMware’s business in the United States. The Supplier Diversity program maintains a list of diverse suppliers and seeks out potential suppliers through benchmarking, supplier diversity council events and databases.
