Inclusive Communities

At Cisco, we intentionally cultivate an inclusive work environment where employees can thrive and innovate, and Cisco can win.

That’s why over 30,000 of our employees around the globe participate in our Inclusive Communities—29 Employee Resource Groups where employees encourage each other to network, develop leadership skills, serve as change agents, and learn to be informed allies to various cultures and perspectives.
