Student Network Day @ Cisco Live

Student Network Day at Cisco Live

Cisco Corporate Responsibility in Action
Cisco invests in scalable and self-sustaining programs that use technology to meet some of society’s biggest challenges. Our commitment to increasing global access to education will be amplified at Cisco Live 2015 during a free day of education and engagement for 600+ local college students interested in technology.

College students in the San Diego area are invited to Cisco Live for a special day of learning and mentorship.

In the 1980’s they said it was “who you know” that helped us succeed in life. In the 90’s it was “what you know” that defined our success. Today, it’s not only who you know and what you know, but also how you connect and use technology to innovate across everything.

Simply put, each of us relies on networks every day of our lives, both human and technological. As we mature our networks grow larger becoming more complex, more complete and more essential. This is what Cisco knows best and it’s why our largest corporate social responsibility program, Networking Academy, is hosting a day specifically for you with valuable education sessions and networking opportunities.

Come and learn from industry leaders how the Internet of Everything is changing how the world works, lives, plays and learns.  Understand how this is influencing jobs, how we give back to society, and how you can be best prepared as the future innovators of the world.

Ladies, you play a special role in the future of technology. Come learn why and how you can set yourself apart as an innovator in almost any career.
