Resources and Awards - Inclusion & Diversity

Inclusion, Collaboration and Technology

Listen as Cisco executives share their primary research and conversations with CIOs and CDOs on the relationship between inclusion, collaboration, and technology.

In today's hypercompetitive, and hyper-connected, global marketplace, companies need great ideas from all corners, and levels, of the organization. The Internet of Everything is making all of this possible, by enabling more expansive collaboration and data sharing than ever before possible.
