Changing the Equation

New Strategies – New Possibilities

Our bold new strategies are designed to actually change the equation for diverse talent.

To change the equation, we need to to break through barriers, to multiply the impact of inclusive leadership, and to create environments where everyone can thrive. We’re collaborating with organizations and leaders that are as passionate about transformation as we are. Cisco’s Multiplier Effect Pledge is creating extraordinary momentum among inclusive leaders of all levels.

We are proud to take both a national and global leadership role in a number of high profile collaborations to drive equity and create fully diverse and inclusive organizations. We’re founding signers of the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ Pledge, the Parity Pledge, and the White House Equal Pay Pledge.  And we’re leading members of the Employers for Equal Pay Consortium to help make the promise of fair pay a reality for all employees.
