It’s Time to ‘Restructure Everything’ — and Push Diversity

By Jessica Lyons Hardcastle - SDXCentral
Article

VMware recently held its annual Women Transforming Technology (WT2) conference, which focuses on promoting diversity and inclusion in the technology sector. As much as I’d been looking forward to attending the event — my first time — as the COVID-19 pandemic progressed, and the conference approached and became a digital event, I started wondering if I should skip it.

Think Holistically About Sustainability — It’s Much More Than Climate

By Andrew Birmingham, Which-50

While many people think sustainability is about green policies, that is only part of the story, says VMware Vice President, Sustainability Strategy Nicola Acutt. 

“Our view is holistic and inclusive of sustainability for people and the planet.”

Indeed, Acutt says VMware frames its definition of sustainability around three ideas: people, planet and product. “For us, sustainability is about resilience and capacity to thrive over time.”

Putting Down Roots: Businesses Act on Reforestation

Blog

Each year, the Earth Day Network calls on people around the world to act for the environment. For Earth Day 2020—the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the nonprofit’s theme is climate action.

Technology plays an increasingly important role in climate action, especially as this year’s Earth Day movement goes digital. However, one of the most effective innovations to address climate change already exists: the almighty tree.

Every Bit Counts This Earth Day

Today officially marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, where we bring awareness to the importance of climate action to help heal our planet. We’re facing unprecedented times—sheltering in place, homeschooling, and taking care of loved ones over phone or video. This is a powerful reminder of how interconnected and interdependent we are on each other, our communities and our planet. And how VMware’s rallying cry this Earth Day—Every Bit Counts—is more meaningful than ever.

Building an Inclusive Culture at VMware

D&I Annual Report provides a look at where we are in our journey and our focus areas for the future By Shanis Windland, Vice President Diversity & Inclusion, VMware Inc.
Press Release

As “social distancing” and “sheltering in place” become our new normal, it’s so important that we connect and share our fears, struggles and hopefully small wins.

For example, I find it difficult lately to jump into a video call without first acknowledging the issues we’re all dealing with, such as:

  • Home-schooling children.

  • Helping at-risk or critically ill friends and family.

  • The mental stress of dealing with such an unknown global situation.

Trees, a Remarkable Innovation, the Unsung Heroes of Mitigating Climate Change

By Nicola Acutt, VP, Sustainability Strategy, VMware

When you really think about it, trees are an amazing innovation.

Trees:

  • Clean the air we breathe.
  • Filter the water we drink.
  • Provide habitat to more than 80 percent of the world’s plants and animals. 

Forests provide jobs to more than 1.6 billion people, and they serve a critical function for humanity: they absorb carbon from the atmosphere.

Thoughts from a Trip Way Down Under

Blog

As I write this, my wife Linda and I are heading home after a two-week adventure cruise here in Antarctica. It’s always been a bucket-list item for me to touch the seventh continent. However, as I think back to the planning stages of this trip a year ago, I admit I felt a sense of urgency. While I’m an optimist on all matters – including the potential for technology to help reverse climate change – I worried that in my lifetime this special place might never be the same. So we decided we should embark on this trip sooner versus later.
