Natacha Comar

Project Coordinator

Natacha coordinates strategic partner relationships for Cisco’s Corporate Social Responsibility programs in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Her objective is to multiply Cisco’s positive impact on society by partnering with international organizations. She recently graduated from the French Institute for Sustainable Development with a master’s degree in Corporate Social Responsibility. She hopes to bring innovative ideas and lots of energy to participate in Cisco’s expertise for social benefit. Social innovation and social entrepreneurship especially interest her.

During her one-year study training program, she interned for Cisco France and had the opportunity to work on multiple local CSR projects. She helped create and was in charge of coordinating the first edition of “Le Défi Cisco.” This student challenge was designed to stimulate innovation in France and support the Generation Y entrepreneurial spirit through a competitive contest applying technology to social and environmental issues.

Natacha also volunteers in her community. She has been president of her college student association for sustainable development, raising awareness among her fellow students on environmental issues and innovative eco-friendly solutions and by facilitating their engagement with non-governmental organizations. She is now part of a Parisian nonprofit that focuses on helping homeless people and answering to basic needs such as food, hygiene products, and clothing by organizing evening rounds in the city.

Born in a Greek and French family, Natacha lived in New York City for 3 years and now lives in Paris. She enjoys traveling and loves discovering new countries and cultures. She is thrilled to be part of Cisco’s multi-cultural environment.
