“Whilst I feel every day is Women’s Day at VMware this whole month we are shining a light on our internal Women’s POD (Power of Difference). We are showcasing the amazing work our POD members do to bring awareness to the successes of our women employees, specifically the #BREAKTHEBIAS initiative. We have organised 12 talks and workshops on a variety of topics that are challenging and inspiring women and allies at VMware. All presentations and talks will be hosted at a variety of time zones ensuring all members across the company feel included and can come together to celebrate Women’s Day/Month at VMware.”

To keep the country safe, we rely on those passionate about cutting-edge technology - no matter their gender. If you identify as female and have a talent for STEM, there’s almost certainly a graduate role for you here.

Join us at our STEM Women Technology Event on March 30th, where we’ll give you the opportunity to hear what it’s like to work at the Intelligence Agencies.
We are having a virtual coffee and chat with our DEI Director Jess Lee, to give people an opportunity to ask questions and talk about Jess’ vision for the company and how we can be strong allies and ambassadors for EDI. We are also sharing quotes from employees about inspirational female role models and any advice people would offer young women considering STEM in their educational options and career. At Brasov we have a virtual event celebrating women who’ve broken through bias. In Europe we are also promoting creating inclusive greetings (to try and move away from the “hey guys”) and raise awareness around how this can exclude people from the conversation. We also usually share virtually and onsite posters of females in Science at Wilmslow.
Join mthree on International Women’s Day (5-6pm GMT) as they bring together several different panelists to discuss their professional journeys and how they continue to speak up for Breaking the Bias in Technology.
Panelists include Associate Dean at mthree, Senior Talent Specialist and current mthree Alumni & Java Developer. The panelists will be sharing their experiences, advice and collectively showing support towards creating gender equality.
