Come and join CBP as we dig deep on some of Cisco's Community Impact and Social Justice Actions for calendar years 2022 - 2023. Support the work being done with black non-profits (Action 1), HBCUs (Action 8), and how Cisco is changing how our partners address diversity (Action 10) as we move into the future. We will periodically highlight a number of non-profit organizations throughout the year and particularly during Black History Month, so your non-profit nominations are important to us and we rely on your feedback. Come along to learn about non-profit organizations supporting the black community and join the movement to empower an inclusive future for all. Your contributions will directly impact the fundraising efforts for the CBP Power to Empower Fund. Note: Your feedback is important to us!
