Our employee communities build lasting relationships and opportunities.
Our culture of inclusion is fueled by a thriving Inclusion and Collaboration (I&C) Community—a platform for diverse groups to connect, build powerful new relationships, explore their unique passions and talents, innovate, and excel. In 196 chapters across 44 countries, our I&C Community has over 25,000 active members participating in Employee Resource Organizations, Networks, Virtual Groups, Inclusion Leadership Teams, and the annual flagship event known as Women of Impact.
Our I&C Community is doing amazing things – from expanding awareness around hidden disabilities to paying tribute to Fallen Heroes. From standing for unity, to inspiring at-risk students to seek higher education, to leading courageous conversations that break down barriers and accelerate diversity. Together, we’re transforming our company, our communities, and the world.
At Cisco, making a difference in our local communities is an important part of our culture. Employees have many opportunities to give and volunteer their time in meaningful ways – through their teams as well as individually. Throughout the world, our employees generously give of their talent, time, and compassion.
Our Inclusion and Collaboration Community is another way we are creating forums to innovate, exchange ideas, and think globally.
