What you need to know

Cisco has one of the most diverse executive leadership teams (ELT) and nearly half are women.  We believe that diversity of thought is how we innovate.

Cisco was a leader in advancing fair pay for everyone as one of the 28 founding signers of the White House Equal Pay Pledge.  We created a framework to evaluate the health of our compensation, and where we found gaps (less than 1% of our employee population) we made changes.  We’re also a proud member of the UN’s Global Innovation Coalition for Change, making technology more accessible for young women and encourage them to work in STEM fields.

You can see that corporate social responsibility (CSR) at Cisco isn’t just a buzz phrase, it’s just who we are.  And while we can choose however we’d like to spend our five days time off just for giving back, many of our women in tech choose to volunteer in STEM programs.

Women at Cisco also support each other through mentorship and networking.  We have employee resource organizations (EROs) like Women in Science and Engineering and Connected Women and we’re proud of our allies in the ERO called Men for Inclusion –just to name a few.

Gender Diversity
Gender diversity starts at the top. Currently, Cisco’s Executive Leadership Team is approaching 50% women. They’re not just women, they’re women from all kinds of backgrounds and cultures. Even better, Cisco’s CEO Chuck Robbins chooses his executive leadership from the best – not the best women, just the best talent.

Please review our gender diversity statistics and initiatives in our annual Corporate Social Responsibility report.
