    • Technology

Why should companies invest in social impact programs? Today on Tech Talks Daily, we delve into this compelling question with Brian Tippens, SVP and Chief Social Impact Officer at Cisco. Together, we explore how integrating social impact strategies not only drives positive change but also propels business outcomes forward.
Cisco stands at the forefront of this movement, harnessing its vast technological resources and extensive ecosystem to champion an inclusive future for all. Our discussion will highlight Cisco's key initiatives that illustrate the profound intersection of social responsibility and business strategy. These efforts include climate sustainability, response to crises, advancement of social justice, skills development, community impact through employee engagement, economic empowerment, digital inclusion, and accessibility.
In a time when ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) can spark controversy, Brian will share why companies like Cisco continue to invest in social impact, viewing it as essential to their business ethos and crucial for addressing global challenges. We'll also shed light on Cisco’s "One Billion Lives Positively Impacted" initiative and their comprehensive actions for social justice.
Join us as we uncover the tangible benefits of these initiatives not just for society, but for the employees, customers, and partners of a global enterprise. How do you think embracing social impact can reshape the future of business? Share your thoughts and join the conversation.
