About

While the Women@VMware POD works towards creating an inclusive culture and empowering women employees internally, we also feel the need to help the world outside. The Women@VMware Women's Empowerment Fund supports a curated set of organizations working towards gender equality and advancement of women worldwide. Your donations to this fund will help support all women in getting access to quality education, health care and sustainable livelihood opportunities and training. This fund is being launched to commemorate Women's History Month in March and seeks to empower more women, so they can lead healthy, successful and dignified lives.
