Inclusion and Diversity
Innovation driven by diversity at Lesbians Who Tech San Francisco Summit 2019
Innovative ideas begin with a team that has diverse work experiences, different skills, and different perspectives based on race, gender, orientation, ability, and age.
Committing to Inclusion and Diversity
Cisco employs education, process, and innovative solutions to move from intention to action to results.
Sponsorship fuels a rich and diverse pipeline
Cisco introduced The Multiplier Effect, which asks leaders to pledge to sponsor at least one extraordinary diverse person in their organization and challenge their peers to do the same.
Cisco invests in us, now it’s time to pay it forward
The Passion Project is part of Cisco’s annual Women of Impact conference – an entire day devoted to the professional development of women, which is open to the public.
Between where we stand today and where we go from here, there’s a bridge
At Cisco, we believe the true promise of inclusion and collaboration is to create a culture where all people are welcomed, valued, respected and heard. A culture where the full spectrum of diversity can fully participate in the business. A culture that empowers its people to accelerate social change and create thriving communities by supporting the causes they care about.
Coming Together for a Day of Understanding
Two years ago, our CEO Chuck Robbins joined with over 500 other corporate leaders in signing the global CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ Pledge. Today, Cisco is again joining with these companies to recognize December 7 as a Day of Understanding. An opportunity to highlight the importance of fostering courageous conversations in the workplace, specifically around unconscious bias.
Diversity – The Key to Better Business
Putting diverse talent into high-profile and high-impact roles is one of the most significant ways an organization can sustainably alter its diversity profile. The minute that happens, the narrative starts to shift because those great leaders start to put their own thoughts, views, and vision of the world into the organization. That is what I believe to be the real “needle mover.”
