Cisco's Country Impact: Australia

Cisco is at the heart of Australia’s digitisation. We play an active role in helping to build digital capability with organisations and society to maximise the benefits of digital transformation. We bring this to life with a strategic Country Impact Plan that aligns with Australia's national priorities and accelerates digitisation to create an inclusive future for all.

We invest across three critical pillars of impact - digital economy, human capital and healthy communities funded by Cisco’s Country Digital Acceleration program and through partnerships with industry, government, and education institutions.

Our focus on country impact means ensuring the benefits of digital transformation are extended and inclusive to all members of society, regardless of income, skill, location, or any factor that hinders their ability to participate in a digital society.
