Cerner Extends Support to VMware's Upskilling Program

VMware’s up-skilling program, VMinclusion Taara, aimed at helping women restart their career after a break has secured support from Cerner Corporation (CERN), a global health care technology company.


Cerner is the program’s newest industry participant in India, supporting women looking for the training and the right opportunity to resume work.


Several leading organisations like State Bank of India, Bharti Airtel, and Cognizant have already extended their support to the program. They will be open to considering women being certified on VMware’s digital transformation solutions for relevant openings within their organizations.


The VMinclusion Taara program was launched in October 2018 to address the increasing gender gap in the technology sector.


Duncan Hewett, Senior Vice President & GM, APJ, VMware said, “The increasing gender gap in the technology sector is a matter of great concern as a diverse workforce is directly related to greater innovation. With VMinclusion Taara, we wanted to drive positive and inclusive change within the Indian technology sector by addressing the issue of gender-based talent drain. It is wonderful to have organizations like Cerner extend their support for the program.”


Rama Nadimpalli, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Cerner India stated, “We are deeply committed to fostering greater diversity and inclusivity within our organization as well as within the industry. VMinclusion Taara is a brilliant initiative to encourage a fair representation of women in the industry, making way for progress and a culture of unbiased meritocracy. Our relationship with VMware aims at facilitating and empowering women to take charge of their career growth.”
