Web-Scale Wish Cause Spotlight: Hillcroft College

By Angelo Luciani

Overview

The right technology in the right hands has the power to change lives and organizations. This holiday season, Nutanix will give web-scale converged infrastructure to the non-profit organizations chosen by you, our community! The Web-Scale Wish Project will donate up to $500,000 of products and services to three worthy causes — one grand prize winner and two runners up, with the goal of furthering the missions of these organizations by backing them with the power of web-scale technology.

From now until the week of December 8th when the three finalists are announced and the final round of community voting begins, we will be sharing information about some of the non-profit organizations that have been nominated by passionate members of the technical community.

The first Web-Scale Wish non-profit participant that we are pleased to spotlight is Hillcroft College

Their mission statement:

  • To provide outstanding educational opportunities through residential and individualised learning.
  • To enable women to progress in their work, community and in their personal lives.
  • To develop educational services for organisations dedicated to women’s advancement, and become a forum for debate.
  • The National Residential College for Women, (which the Charity started at this time), remains the first and, still the only, College of its type in the UK even today. Based on the outskirts of London, it has remained a centre for many women to stay and study successfully.
  • In a vibrant and dynamic environment, we are able to cater for a wide range of women, many of whom may not have had previous opportunities to develop their potential as much as they would have wished.
