The gender pay gap shows the difference between the average (mean or median) earnings of men and women and is always expressed as a percentage of male earnings. These UK-required reporting statistics are not the same as equal pay, which deals with pay discrimination and the differences in pay when members of the opposite sex are paid differently but yet they carry out the same work, similar work or work of equal value.
Our disclosure for The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 in the UK reveals an issue which is common across the technology industry: there are still not enough women in senior technology roles.
Closing the Gender Pay Gap: VMware’s Commitment to Advancing Women in Leadership Roles
VMware is proud to be an organisation that is committed to the success of its female workforce. It is our goal to not only improve representation of women in the technology sector, but also to demonstrate that it is an industry where women can truly have a thriving and rewarding career while driving success.
We welcome the UK law that requires us to report our gender pay gap calculations. We recognise that transparency and accountability is at the heart of tackling this and monitoring our pay gap will help us to measure our progress and continue to challenge ourselves as we strive to increase female representation and advance women’s leadership and representation of women in senior technology roles within our industry.
We take an agile approach to improving diversity in order to evolve our programmes, tools and policies in a way that drives change both in our organization and across the technology industry as a whole. We recognise that recruiting a diverse workforce and then retaining them is a core component to our mission and goal of improving female representation and persistently increasing senior female leaders across our talented workforce. We also continue to regularly review our workforce’s pay, to ensure that it is both fair, non-discriminatory and competitive in the market.
We confirm the data reported is accurate.
