ATLANTA - SEPTEMBER 7TH, 2022 — Women Who Code (WWCode), the largest global nonprofit dedicated to inspiring diverse women to succeed in technology careers, is proud to welcome our newest Advisor, Mansi Shah, Senior Staff Engineer and Data Architect at VMware. Mansi will be using her experience in the industry to support WWCode in their goal of seeing women proportionally represented at every level of technology careers and leadership.
Mansi is a technologist with extensive leadership experience in enterprise, cloud, and SaaS data products. She is also seasoned at building highly motivated engineering teams and establishing alliances across business units, technology partners, fields, and customers. In her role as a WWCode Advisor, she’ll be using that knowledge to support Women Who Code’s goals and vision while specifically providing valuable insights into how to continuously improve the organization's processes, projects, and initiatives.
“It is an honor to be a part of the Women Who Code advisory board and have an opportunity to help this amazing organization with their mission,“ said Mansi Shah. “I am thrilled to contribute towards a future, where diversity is no longer an afterthought, but will become an implicit part of our (tech) culture.”
“Mansi’s vast experience in the technology industry and her history with bootstrapping and delivering on massive projects will be invaluable to Women Who Code’s mission in the coming years,” said Alaina Percival, CEO and co-founder of Women Who Code. “We’re so excited to have her join us, and to see the amazing work that we can do together.”
VMware has a long history of supporting Women Who Code initiatives including their annual WWCode CONNECT developer conferences, their local Networks, their free online events and technical tracks, and most notably with VMinclusion Taara, a joint program designed to retrain 15,000 women in India to be able to reenter the workforce.
“VMware sets specific and measurable goals to increase the representation of women globally and ensure that women have every opportunity to succeed and grow at VMware. In 2022, women held 27.2% of leadership roles in our company,” CEO Raghu Raghuram said. “Our partnership with Women Who Code is one of the ways we are investing in advancing women in technology. We’re excited for Mansi’s new role on the Women Who Code Advisory Board, and the opportunities for continued collaboration.”
