Dell hits 2020 Circular Milestones, Recycles 2 Billion Pounds of Electronics.

January 9, 2019

This time of year most of us are in goal-setting mode. We’re looking for the new, better version of ourselves. For me personally I hope to decrease screen time, increase miles on my bike, and spend more time with family.  But maybe we don’t need to start something new but rather rethink an approach or redesign a routine. When it comes to technology, we at Dell believe our past powers our future. We reimagine what one might consider junk or…

XPS 13 is Finally Perfect. Smile!

January 8, 2019

Not only is it a laptop that embodies our continuous innovation, it is also a laptop that has garnered the admiration and accolades of the industry as a whole.

When we disrupted the industry in 2015 by introducing the first edge to edge InfinityEdge…

CES is the one of the biggest technology shows in the world, so it can be hard to stand out, especially if you’re a business PC at a consumer show.

Working and Living Without Limits.

December 3, 2018

Our paths in life are riddled with times of joy and sadness, challenges and triumphs. Your character determines how you chose to navigate your life’s path and its twists and turns. My colleague, Kris Biagiotti-Bridges, has been dealt a path that many would deem challenging and at times insurmountable. But, Kris, she just smiles and says in her wicked Boston accent, “I don’t know anything else.” Kris was raised on a farm, learning at a young age the definition of…

Great Minds Require Great Machines

November 26, 2018

It’s America Recycles Day: Let’s Engineer Out Waste

November 15, 2018

I’m an engineer in the Experience Design Group at Dell. My team designs products and services with a focus on the quality of the user experience. Sometimes design is done well, but frequently it’s not, and that can have significant implications for sustainability. I’m…

Improving the Ecosystem for Women Entrepreneurs Through Public Policy

October 26, 2018

Under representation of women in business today is a missed opportunity – not just from a moral standpoint but also from an economic one. Statistics show us that women represent the largest market opportunity, controlling $20 trillion in annual spending. Twelve trillion could be added to the global GDP by 2025 by advancing women’s equality and it is a known fact that when women earn an income they reinvest 90 percent of that income back into their families and communities….

Working Together for Water and a Cleaner Lake Taihu

October 25, 2018

Imagine if a toxic microcystis algae bloom left 2.3 million people (about the population of Paris, France) without drinking water for a week. After years of poor sewage systems, fertilizer runoff and wastewater from industrial processes, this is exactly what happened at China’s Lake Taihu in 2007, near some of our suppliers. Incidents like this have far-reaching consequences, especially when you consider that only 0.5 percent of world’s freshwater reserves are accessible (according to WBCSD) and more than half of…
