The VMware Foundation is an important part of the culture at VMware. This culture of service connects VMware employees with each other, as well as with our broader community.
At VMware, our giving is rooted in a philosophy that we call Citizen Philanthropy, which speaks to the power of choice in where and how we give back. The choice in how to contribute one’s time, talent, and resources, as well as the choice of which causes to support. As such, the VMware Foundation is a platform to amplify employees’ contributions to the causes closest to their hearts.
In this short video, Nicola Acutt, vice president, Global Community Affairs, speaks to how VMware’s unique approach to giving goes beyond writing a check, and how, together, individual actions add-up to our collective impact.
Nicola also gives a preview of “Destination Give Back,” which is new to VMworld this year. Located in the Hang Space in Hall E of the Moscone Center, the VMware Foundation is inviting attendees to have some fun and give back. Attendees will be able to learn more about causes selected by VMware employees and test their ingenuity to make giving take flight with the VMware Foundation.
