Shraddha Chaplot


Shraddha works in California, USA, for Cisco as a Greengineer and Machinegineer (fun titles she created herself). She currently creates and demos Internet of Things (IoT) technology solutions for customers across all industries at Cisco. Shraddha joined the company as a hardware engineer in the Accessibility Team, where she tested products to ensure they met global accessibility requirements and standards. During her time in the team, she grew more passionate about accessibility and spearheaded the acquisition of a $100,000 Cisco Research gift for National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID), as well as bringing on Cisco's first two interns who were deaf. She went on to build Cisco's Energy Star Compliance Lab from the ground up and qualified the first set of products for the company.
