Meg North Taylor, a long-time communications and media professional, is community relations manager at Cisco, where she manages programs and communications on the company's involvement in improving education, addressing basic human needs such as food and shelter, and in driving economic development. She has worked for Cisco's corporate communications group since 2004.


In addition to her work for Cisco, Taylor is the founder and volunteer executive director of Lending Promise, a nonprofit organization that provides microcredit (small loans) and related training to poor mothers in Nepal and India.
