VMware's Inclusive Terminology Journey


VMware has undertaken the multifaceted task of correcting non-inclusive terminology used in our products and company collateral. Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, “Life is a journey, not a destination.” As with any societal issue, the journey toward inclusive terminology can’t happen overnight. Rather, it will be an ongoing effort to identify and replace terms and vocabulary choices that appear in our content and products. This journey requires changes in our mindset, awareness and understanding.

The Value of Perseverance: Why Rocky Starts Can Make Us Stronger

Dr. Moogega Cooper, planetary protection engineer for the Mars 2020 Mission, gives her take on what it means to fail. And it's a lesson worth remembering.
