The challenges our city and nation face — growing inequality, homelessness, mass incarceration — require bold solutions and collaboration. What role does the tech industry play in solving these problems? Why does diversity and opportunity in the sector matter? How do we make the sure future of work is inclusive? Where does public policy fit in?

  • Jen Pahlka, Founder and Executive Director of Code for America
  • Matt Haney, SF School Board Member and candidate for District 6 Supervisor
  • Sarah Cooper, writer, comedian, and former Google UX Lead
  • Bastian Lehmann, Founder and CEO of Postmates

Topics will include: the future of work, artificial intelligence, the role of tech employees in holding companies accountable, and the Trump presidency.
