Jessica Graham

Community Relations Manager

Jessica is the Community Relations Manager for the Cisco Silicon Valley site. Giving back is her game, and data-driven community impact is her middle name. (Actually, it’s Camille).  Whether you have an hour once a year, or an afternoon once a week, Jessica’s role is to empower you (and 16,000+ Cisco employees) to get engaged in the greater Bay Area community. Jessica also leads Cisco’s participation as a founding partner of US2020, a STEM mentoring initiative that seeks to galvanize 1 million STEM volunteers to mentor and demonstrate the hip and cool relevance of science and technology careers to the next generation of scientists, engineers, and critical thinkers.

Jessica has been with Cisco for 2.5 years and brings to her role a decade of experience in the nonprofit sector around education and education reform, civic engagement and volunteer management, fundraising, and board management.

Jessica earned dual bachelor's degrees in English and Spanish from Oakwood College in Huntsville, Alabama, and a master's degree in education from Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  In her spare time, Jessica mentors a group of  youth entrepreneurs in East Oakland, and currently resides in San Jose, California with Max, a lively, 5-year old Pomeranian.
