SOCIAL IMPACT AT CISCO LIVE

Join our efforts to make a positive impact on the world, and to benefit people in the local San Diego community. 

WHY SOCIAL IMPACT

Our social impact mission at Cisco Live is to amplify Cisco’s commitment to positively impact people, society, and the planet. Our activities align with Cisco’s Corporate Social Responsibility priorities, one of which is to meet critical human needs like food, clean water, shelter, and disaster relief. This year at Cisco Live, our Social Impact Zone activities are designed to help people who are homeless in the San Diego community.

NEW THIS YEAR: PARTNERSHIP WITH GIVE2GET

Cisco Live has partnered with Give2Get this year to offer volunteer activities that will benefit people who are homeless in the local San Diego community. In the Social Impact Zone you can participate in a variety of hands-on activities, including assembling meal kits, family food packs, hygiene kits, art therapy kits, clothing packs, blankets, and furniture. All finished products will be donated to local nonprofits addressing homelessness and food insecurity.

TAKE THE PLEDGE

Join Cisco and become part of the movement to make a positive impact on the world. When you visit the Social Impact Zone, take the pledge to be the bridge between hope and possible. Get ideas and inspiration for how you can make a positive impact on people, society, and the planet. And meet like-minded attendees who want to use their skills, access, and ability to do good.
