The Great Redesign - with Sharon Mandell, Juniper Networks
Talking sustainability, inclusivity, and going back into the office with Juniper CIO Sharon Mandell
In this edition of the Sustaining Sustainability podcast, brought to you by the University of Pittsburgh Center for Sustainable Business, host CB Bhattacharya talks to Juniper’s CIO Sharon Mandell about the many ways Juniper is working to reduce its environmental impact as well as its customers’. From converting ocean-bound plastics into useful packaging to investing in onsite energy generation and purchasing renewable energy, Juniper is committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2025.
“We believe that the future for networking companies is going to be owned by those who foster both digital transformation and enable decarbonization through its products and operations,” Sharon says.
Listen as they also talk about diversity, inclusion and supporting women in STEM. Sharon joined Juniper at the start of the pandemic. She shares what that was like and how she is looking forward to meeting colleagues face to face that she has still never met in person.
