Cisco China Embraces Cisco’s Giving Back Philosophy

AAEAAQAAAAAAAAOMAAAAJGMxMjI3OWJmLTVjZGEtNDE2Yy04Mzc2LWQ4OTFkM2U5YWRkYg

Cisco has always followed a philosophy of giving back to the community, and in recent years, Cisco China has participated in various community and volunteer programs including: Hands on Shanghai (HOS), River of Hearts (ROH), One Heart Gift Bag, Hiking for One Egg, etc. Giving makes a difference, and with lots of love and warm hearts, “Helping Others” is not just a slogan at Cisco, but a way of life for all Cisco employees.

This summer, prior to the Dragon Boat Festival, the Greater China Talent Acquisition Team participated in a volunteer program which was organized by “Green Food Bank” NGO. We delivered Festival greetings and food to those elderly and poverty-stricken families in Tang Qiao community, Shanghai of China. We were extremely excited to take part in this event!

This Give Back Day was part of a global initiative, where the Talent Acquisition team as a whole volunteered all on the same day.

Cisco is a pioneer in Giving Back and we are dedicated to the cause. We are connecting the unconnected with our technologies and products, and we also link with people by our love. Previously we did, at present we are doing and in the future we will do it better.

Cisco Volunteers Help Stop Hunger before the Holidays

This Thanksgiving, many of us will celebrate with our friends and family. We’ll gather and enjoy roasted turkey, creamy mashed potatoes, and a slice of grandma’s pumpkin pie for dessert. Unfortunately, 805 million around the world don’t have enough to eat. Last week, I learned that we can change that. I participated in the StopHungerNow Volunteer Food Sort on Cisco’s San Jose campus and joined 200 employees in the fight against hunger.

As part of Cisco’s 12th Annual Global Hunger Relief Campaign, we packaged rice, soy, and vitamins into small plastic bags for distribution. Together, we boxed up 50,000 meals, which will be shipped to hungry children in more than 27 countries this year.

Before we started packing bags, my colleague Eric and I had to take a selfie!

Three Cisco Employee Volunteers Recognized as “Citizen Teachers of the Year” by Citizen Schools

Three Cisco employees were recently named “Cisco Citizen Teachers of the Year” by Citizen Schools, one of Cisco’s longtime nonprofit education partners.

More than 125 volunteers from Cisco have stepped out of their jobs as engineers, sales executives, and technology professionals to become mentors and “Citizen Teachers,” leading groups of students in 10-week “apprenticeship” classes. Thanks to their commitment to the program, over 700 students have had access to caring mentors and developed an interest in pursuing future careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.
