Inspiring Innovation

We believe that creativity sparks innovation and inspires our employees to think differently and challenge the status quo. Whether it’s the kind of products we develop, our approach to sustainability, or the manner in which we give back to our communities, VMware finds unique ways to bring people together to fuel creative thinking.


At VMware, we have a passion for innovation. Our events for engineers around the world spark cutting-edge ideas and new products, and our Hands-on Labs let us share our creativity with our customers.


Giving Back

At VMware, we are all Citizen Philanthropists who share a personal mission to serve, learn, and inspire. The VMware Foundation provides a unique platform for our people to generously give back through 40 hours of paid service learning (volunteering), social investments, milestone anniversary awards, and matching gifts.



Through the collective impact of our employees, customers and partners, VMware strives to be a Force for Good in the world. VMware is committed to leave a better future - to put back more into the environment, society and global economy than we take. We’re determined to make a positive imprint on the world and believe that through our collective impact we can support business growth, help communities thrive and inspire people to do what’s right for the planet and society.

Speaker Series

Intellectual mavericks. Thought leaders. Iconoclasts. We welcome diverse thinking and challenging conversations. Candy Chang, Amy Cuddy, Elizabeth Gilbert, Jane McGonigal, Simon Sinek, and Erik Wahl are just some of the extraordinary, high-profile presenters and TEDTalk speakers we’ve invited to share their inspiring ideas, passions, and stories of conviction.


Rough Cut

Each quarter we go “behind the scenes” with iconic Hollywood actors to hear their personal stories and how they are giving back to their communities. With guests including Shabana Azmi, Geena Davis, Carrie Fisher, Kathy Griffin, Edward James Olmos, and Adam Savage, these signature “Actors Studio” style interviews inspire creativity in new and enlightening ways.



To celebrate the critical role of Arts in our Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths community, we host music concerts throughout the year. These intimate events have created unforgettable moments for our employees – some who have had backstage photos with Sara Bareilles, Colbie Caillat, Chris Daughtry, Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas, and Pat Monahan, to name a few.
