Empowered Women's Network

Cisco Empowered Women’s Network (CEWN) is a network of Cisco customers, partners, and employees joining together to make a difference for women in business.

Overview

The 6th annual Cisco Empowered Women’s Network Event will take place at Cisco Live Melbourne 2019.

 

In the words of William Arthur Ward- “If you can IMAGINE it, you can achieve it”! The theme for the Empowered Women’s Network event at Cisco Live will focus on the progress that has been made to date and how the sky is the limit for what can be achieved for gender equality in the workplace.

 

This year we will have one inspiring woman of influence sharing her journey with us. There will be the opportunity for Q&A with our keynote and for networking throughout the afternoon. We also have one of our most popular EWN speakers back for a special guest appearance to help round out the afternoon.

 

Join us for an exciting afternoon of inspiring stories, delicious food and networking!
