Harnessing the power of “What If?”


Cisco Canada Blog

Sabrina Greupner is the Ontario Science Centre’s new Cisco Science Fellow for Innovative Learning Technologies. This is Cisco’s first museum-based fellowship.

My love affair with all things geeky started in 1968. An inquisitive—and frankly, nosy—five-year-old, I happened to be passing a neighbour’s open door in our west-end Montreal apartment building when I spotted one of those things that can mark a child for life.

It was a colour television. Showing Star Trek.

It was the first time I had seen either, and the fact that I can still picture it clear as day (His shirt is BLUE! He’s got POINTY EARS!) indicates the extent to which my imagination was captured and happily held hostage for life.

Empowering a Diverse Workforce


Cisco Canada Blog

“Entrepreneurial Volunteerism” that is how I describe our inclusion and diversity strategy at Cisco. This is what you get when you give passionate people the freedom and support to explore what is important for them.

A great example of this would be the Canadian women’s group who has set out their charter as Recruit (show Cisco Canada as a great place to work for women), Retain (provide opportunities to network and support each other), and Educate (give access to training to improve professional skills).
