Diversity and Inclusion


In 2019, we set specific and measurable goals around increasing representation for women and underrepresented minorities. As such, all Vice Presidents (VP) and above committed to a Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) goal to improve the representation of women globally, improve representation of U.S. underrepresented minorities (URMs), ensure all interview slates have at least one woman or URM candidate, and strengthen our culture through their leadership actions. 

Our commitment to diversity doesn’t stop there. We are also investing in our Disability, Veterans and LGBTQ communities.

Our Power of Difference Communities (PODs) are a huge part of building a culture of belonging, and we are proud of the work they have accomplished over the past year. Our POD leaders and employees who participate are among the most passionate and mission-driven employees we have advocating for D&I efforts across VMware and beyond.

Every Day is Earth Day at VMware


Earth Month has grown into a worldwide VMware tradition over the last five years. We start with a global message and interpret it through the lens of our company culture and sustainability initiatives to educate, inform and inspire individual action. 

While VMware doesn't directly impact the single-use plastics supply chain, we can influence purchasing decisions and inform our community about a global workforce's daily plastic consumption habits.

Change Starts with Me


Every waterfall begins with a single drop of water. That's the idea behind the VMware Citizen Philanthropy approach to giving—that a waterfall of impact results from the collective actions of VMware employees.

Core to our ethos is the belief that we can all learn and grow through service. The VMware Foundation serves as a platform to amplify the personal contributions of our people to the causes they care most about. We have democratized the company's philanthropic assets, providing equitable access to all global employees through Foundation programs.

Empowering the Future Workforce with Digital Skills


As the pace of change accelerates, access to digital skills training becomes more and more necessary. Through public-private partnerships, VMware is committed to helping individuals gain the foundational knowledge they need to compete in today's workforce by providing access to certifications and ongoing skills education.


The skills gap isn't an issue we can address alone and preparing the workforce for tomorrow demands a global response. VMware has partnered with educational institutions, the African Union15, Women Who Code, Ministries of Education and Telecommunications, and many more. These partnerships extend our global reach and help us better understand a given area's specific education and employment needs.
