San Francisco and the entire Bay Area are hotbeds for opportunity and innovation in the United States today. Across our region, companies are innovating and expanding to build the future, and participation in this economy depends on access and opportunity. Join Foundation Center West for a Meet Up featuring local organizations that work to bridge the access gap and create a more inclusive workforce that represents the entire Bay Area.
In a Lightning talk format, our five featured speakers will share their experience and insight around workforce development. Upon the completion of the presentations, the audience will break out into small discussion groups which the speakers help to guide. A brief feedback loop with the entire audience follows. The event concludes with a Happy Hour reception to continue to make connections and build networks.
