Cisco’s Women of Impact conference was created to give women a space to help and motivate each other.
Women of Impact has been an annual event at Cisco for several years.
Women in the IT field from around the world participate in this conference that facilitates professional networking.
The 2016 Women of Impact theme was #BeUnstoppable.
#BeUnstoppable is a call to all women in IT to keep foraging forward despite obstacles and roadblocks.
The campaign emphasizes gathering knowledge, experience, determination, and confidence.
Speakers, mentors, and allies take the stage to share their advice on being unstoppable.
Both men and women speak on the panels and are encouraged to participate.
“Being unstoppable means that—no matter what—your vision, your dreams, your passions win.” –Shari Slate, Cisco Vice President, Chief Inclusion and Collaboration Officer
