Over 22,000 women have now registered for free courses in digital transformation technologies through VMware’s VMinclusion Taara
VMware announced a partnership with She Loves Data (SLD) India, a not-for-profit organisation that helps women overcome competency, confidence, and leadership gaps by providing training on essential skills. As a part of this collaboration, VMinclusion Taara and SLD will offer women on a career break, an opportunity to learn and take advantage of all the programmes offered by SLD, in addition to the courses offered by VMinclusion Taara.
While VMware’s VMinclusion Taara aims to upskill women by providing free technical education and certification courses in Cloud Management and Automation, Data Center Virtualization, Networking, and Digital Workplaces, SLD will help more women become data-literate through their signature programmes on technology, mentorship, essential skills development, and offer networking opportunities.
“We are deeply committed to fostering greater diversity, equity and inclusion within our organization as well as in the industry. I am particularly heartened by the support this program has received from the industry. Every Taara graduate who returns to work reinforces our belief that training and upskilling is the answer that women on a career break are looking for. We are delighted to partner with She Loves Data to help more women looking to restart their careers”. said Ramkumar Narayanan, VP Technology and Managing Director, VMware India
This partnership aims to reintroduce talented women to the technology field and give them access to free upskilling courses, so they have a fair chance at restarting their careers. The collaboration will also help women accelerate their career growth and co-drive the economy.
“This collaboration marks an important milestone for She Loves Data, following the launch of our India chapter in May this year. We strongly believe that by partnering with tech corporates like VMware, we will be able to harness the strengths and capabilities from our respective organizations to truly move the needle in greater gender diversity in the tech industry. There is so much for us to do together, and I look forward to having more partners in India join us in this movement,” said Jana-Marle Zizkova, Founder of She Loves Data,
