If you’ve tuned into some of the latest headlines within our industry – from the push for pay equity to the call for higher levels of diversity – you may have noticed a common theme. Fairness.
There’s a shift occurring in the dialogue – and action – around driving fairness. And Cisco is making the shift. We’re expanding how we think about fairness and leading a new dialogue on the possibilities we can create in this era of digital transformation – for Cisco, our people, our partners, and our customers.

Imagine walking into your first Wall Street job, fresh out of college, ready to take on the world. That was me twenty-five years ago when I boldly entered the world of finance as a sales assistant for two institutional brokers. At the time I knew nothing about investing or client service, but I knew that it was a fantastic opportunity to learn and it was an environment in which I could thrive – so I was all in.

As I was working on this article, the old Buffalo Springfield lyrics kept buzzing through my mind. “There's something happening here; what it is ain't exactly clear.” The more I looked at actual research about women as investors, both as investment managers and as persons making decisions about how and where to entrust their savings, a conundrum became apparent.

(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) New York, NY - November 15, 2010 - Beauty Company PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics launches Fairness Gloss to inspire women to ask for equal wages for the same work as their male counter-parts. According to its founder, Jody Weiss, "Women in the US are paid an average $.76 to the dollar for the same work a man does. Therefore, comparing a man and women with the same college degree, a woman can lose $500,000 to $1 million over her lifetime due to this wage gap. That's why the slogan for this campaign is 'I Want My Million Bucks'.”
