The Power of Inclusive Innovation

Now more than ever, we need Inclusive Innovation to help solve the most pressing problems we as a society face today. Learn how we are doing just that by role modeling, empowering, and enabling our teams.

The Journey to Proximity: It’s a Marathon, not a Sprint

The horrific events of 2020 became a sobering wake-up call. These circumstances pushed me to lean further into the experiences of people who are different from me – people who are underrepresented, marginalized, or vulnerable in some way.

Celebrating how we have all RISEN above all challenges

For us, at Cisco, diversity and inclusion is a huge part of our culture, and for International Women’s Day this year, we want to align and focus on three key themes that we believe everyone can resonate with: RISE, Thrive and Shine.

Celebrate: Moving Forward with Courage, Empathy, Equality, and Community

I’ve been involved in women advocacy groups throughout my career, and I’ve found that three themes are concurrent through all of that work: courage, empathy, and equality.

NETWORKING

Fostering Diversity in Enterprise Networking Engineering

Even in human relationships, hard data is an eye-opener. When I joined Cisco’s Enterprise Networking Group, one data point was immediately concerning: we had gender imbalance, especially in leadership.

Coming Together as Women of Cisco

I am excited to announce we are bringing together our Connected Women and Cisco Empowered Women's Network into a new powerful organization named Women of Cisco – a single, strong platform for women and their allies.
