Woman in Tech of the Week (3/1/17)
Nicola Acutt, VP of Sustainability Strategy, Office of the CTO, VMware
In a groundbreaking move at VMware Inc., a subsidiary of Dell Technologies, the function of sustainability strategy is now part of the office of the Chief Technology Officer. What makes this move unique is that by using the technology department to drive sustainability throughout the organization, the three pillars of product, planet and people are the guiding forces behind everything the company creates.
“As [the company] thought about sustainability, they put this role in the office of the CTO because it’s about what is the legacy we create, not just in the industry, but for the world,” said Nicola Acutt, vice president of sustainability strategy, office of the chief technology officer, at VMware.
Rebecca Knight, co-host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE’s mobile live-streaming studio, interviewed Acutt during the Women Transforming Technology conference in Palo Alto, CA. They discussed sustainability and the benefits of “design thinking.”
This week, theCUBE spotlights Nicola Acutt in our Women In Tech feature.
