VMware’s Neurodiversity Inclusion Program is a hiring initiative tailored towards individuals with autism. Here at VMware, we encourage every person to bring their authentic selves to work, and we promote an inclusive company culture. We work to make sure our application, interview and onboarding processes as well as our workplace cultures are inclusive and engaging for every individual.
The Neurodiversity Inclusion Program includes enablement for recruiters, hiring teams, and candidates to engage in an interview process that is inclusive of neurodiverse individuals. It also provides a recruiting and hiring process designed to remove unconscious bias.
Candidates hired through this program will have access to mentorship and formal job coaching to ensure success and satisfaction in their new role.
The Neurodiversity Inclusion Program brings new ideas and diverse perspectives that will foster innovation and problem solving.
The program will harness the power of human difference by supporting equal opportunity employment and accessibility.
The development of the program will have a positive impact on our customers and employees as a force for good.
Creating an environment that empowers you to bring your authentic self to work is a priority at VMware. A sense of belonging is an important part of what propels our business forward. Watch the video below to see members of our Power of Difference (POD) communities explain what it means to them to have an open and inclusive workplace.
What is the Neurodiversity Inclusion Program?
Set for Success
Vice President, Chief Open Source Officer
“Neurodiversity and inclusion of neurodiverse employees should be as obvious and self evident as diversity and inclusion efforts based on gender or race. Neurodiverse employees tremendously enrich our teams - they provide insights and perspectives that we would be missing without them. To us in the VMware Open Source Technology Center, neurodiversity is simply yet another spectrum of people that are key assets to our vision and mission, and whom we consider part of our work family.”
