Our People

Intentionally creating an environment where all employees can innovate and thrive.

Fostering a Conscious Culture

Living a Conscious Culture requires us to act with dignity, respect, fairness, and equity in each of our interactions with one another. This helps enable us to Power an Inclusive Future from within.

Inclusion and collaboration

At Cisco, we see inclusion as a bridge—a way to connect diverse perspectives. Spark new ideas, explore new possibilities, tap into the power of digital transformation, and inspire innovation.

Social justice

When we see injustice—whether affecting everyone or specific groups—we act boldly, bravely, and deliberately to make change, remove barriers, and support communities.
