An important first step in achieving true gender equality is to identify and break through the barriers preventing women from rising to the top. It’s why we’ve made a $15 million endowment to the Stanford VMware Women in Leadership Innovation Lab.
This hugely popular conference, founded by VMware, helps inspire, support and connect women in all areas and levels of tech. Running since 2016, the virtual 2021 event attracted more than 10,000 attendees.
Nearly 50 percent of women in India drop out of IT after about five years. VMInclusion Taara sets out to change this. We’ve joined hands with Women Who Code to help 15,000 Indian women return to work. Already, over 9,300 women have participated and over 600 companies have hired our graduates.
To help more women move into leadership roles and to make a real difference to the lives of Indian women in tech, VMware Nirmaan provides a virtual forum where women learn, promote, share best practices and build a community of leaders.
