Together we inspire the future generation of STEM leaders!

Our partnership began in our headquarters in Brussels over 5 years ago and it has grown exponentially year after year.

About our partnership

This collaboration works so well because g4g makes it easy for Cisco to get involved with existing events and/or launch events in new cities across the globe! Our partnership covers three different pillars with Cisco by 1) promoting STEM education, 2) advocating gender diversity and 3) giving back to the community & Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Cisco's main goal is to excite the future generation around Cisco technology & innovation - read a blog from Cisco's Global Greenlight for Girls contact, Aurelia Takacs, to learn more from the Cisco Learning Network! We want to achieve this by hosting hands-on, interactive events & workshops all over the world & by demonstrating just how fun a future in technology can be.


g4g@work Concept launch with Cisco

Considering the huge success of Cisco's custom-made, hands-on workshops hosted at our annual event - g4g Day@Brussels -  we took our collaboration to the next level and introduced a new global concept: g4g@work led by Aurelia Takacs and an incredible team of role models in Cisco Belgium!
