Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is not what it was a few years ago, and, as we learned in our latest episode of Talk2Cisco, it goes far beyond pure philanthropic efforts. Kathy Mulvany, Senior Director of Corporate Affairs at Cisco and Jennifer Biringer, Director at SustainAbility, a think tank and strategy consultancy based in San Francisco, CA bring their expertise and insights around the evolution of CSR in the latest broadcast.
