Imagine an inclusive digital future

Technology is rapidly changing the world of work, our local communities, and our daily lives. Everyone should be able to participate in this transformation. We are crafting new corporate social responsibility initiatives that address global problems, support innovative ideas, and enable opportunity for all in our increasingly digital world.

Empowering tomorrow's global problem solvers

Over the past two decades, we built Cisco Networking Academy into an award-winning education and career-building program, opening doors for people around the world.

As we look toward the next 20 years, we’re coming up with new ways to inspire today’s digital natives to become tomorrow’s global problem solvers. We’re investing in entrepreneurs and early-stage start-ups that harness technology for social good. We partner with nonprofits that use technology to transform lives and scale their impact. And we collaborate with public universities to advance their communities through the power of digitization.
