LGBTQIA+ Benefits

We Support Your Well Being

VMware is proud of the many diverse and unique individuals who make up our workforce and we’re committed to supporting their well-being. A cornerstone of our benefits strategy is a comprehensive and highly-competitive suite of benefits specifically tailored to our growing LGBTQIA+ community (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and/or Questioning, Intersex and Allies).

With online tools, research-backed therapeutic methods, and top therapists, coaches, and digital tools, you and your family can access an easy-to-use, convenient, and confidential way to get support.
