People Behind CSR at Cisco: Why We Take Ethics and Integrity Seriously

Blog

How people behave inside a company is just as important as how they interact outside a company. Like any Corporate Social Responsibility program that aims to contribute to the greater good, maintaining internal ethical practices means those external programs have greater impact. Would you trust a company that gave back to local communities while their employees were bribing partners or abusing their privilege? Not many would, which is why Cisco takes ethics, integrity, and compliance seriously.

Opening a Window of Opportunity to Bring More Women into the Tech Workforce

Blog

The pandemic has shown that it can deepen inequities — and create opportunities. Women are disproportionately affected by many of the cultural, economic, and technological shifts the pandemic is accelerating.

Blog

This holiday season, Cisco has a lot to be grateful for: 35 years of business growth and, today, the launch of our 15th corporate social responsibility (CSR) report. This was my first time shepherding the process of producing a CSR report for a company the size of Cisco, and it was a doozy: we connected with over 90 individuals across the business to collect all the data related to the company’s social, environmental, and governance performance. Content development took 5 months and at 200+ pages, this report could break your toe if you dropped the hard copy. Luckily it’s digital-only.
