When we look back, many of us realize that somewhere along the way, someone did something for us that opened our eyes to the possible. Maybe it was a teacher, a mentor, a coach, a parent, or a friend who helped us learn to read…or to code, to ride a bike, or maybe it was to discover the wonder of science, technology or the arts.
Earlier this week, the VMware Foundation kicked off a campaign around Service Learning – a unique program that offers each VMware employee 40 paid hours to volunteer their time and talents to the community. Service Learning is one way that we can “pay it forward” by teaching and sharing our skills with others.
The inspiration for the campaign came directly from our VMware community. As you’ll see below, our global employees submitted adorable photographs of their children. The variety of images reflects the wide range of passions we all have and the choice we have in how we give back. And, the featured quotes speak to VMware’s history of lifelong learning and learning through service.
Through all of the VMware Foundation programs, employees are able to choose how and where they give back and support the causes that resonate with them. This is one of many ways we live our shared EPIC2 values.
Join us in paying it forward. Don’t miss the photos below, and get inspired to harness your inner philanthropist and give back in a way that resonates with you.
