Alex Wilkins

Project Manager

Sustainability Office

I have the incredible honor of being Cisco's Climate Impact and Regeneration Portfolio Associate for the Cisco Foundation's climate commitment within the Cisco Foundation and the Chief Sustainability Office. After earning an M.A. in Anthropology with a focus around Conservation Ecology, I built a career in nonprofit administration and management. Now, as the grants portfolio associate for Cisco's climate commitment, I'm dedicated to supporting organizations that work towards climate resiliency in vulnerable communities worldwide. Through strategic funding and collaborative partnerships, I'm committed to ensuring a brighter and more regenerative future for our earth and for us all. When I'm not working, you'll often find me exploring the natural world. If I’m not clipped into my road bike, I'm probably hiking in the Santa Cruz foothills with my dog Milo or checking on my container garden.
