CONVENE works to improve the quality of life in the Bay Area by collaborating on various projects with nonprofits and other community leaders. To further tech’s involvement, engages our member companies and their employees to discuss important issues at the intersection of technology and civic affairs with the broader San Francisco community.

sf.citiʼs One City Forum quarterly event series brings our members and the broader San Francisco community together to meet, connect, and learn. We call it “networking with a purpose.” At our recent One City Forum events we explored timely topics related to immigration policy, proposed federal budget cuts, local elections, and more. To help ignite these thought-provoking conversations, some of our featured speakers included representatives from the ACLU of Northern California, Planned Parenthood of Northern California, Microsoft, Y-Combinator and Meals on Wheels of San Francisco.


Forum members educate, raise awareness, and focus on building a collaborative approach towards San Franciscoʼs greatest challenges. The Forum is comprised of nine volunteer members, each of whom belongs to a tech company or nonprofit with a San Francisco presence. They meet regularly to plan Forum events and build partnerships between the tech industry and nonprofits in San Francisco. Members serve a minimum of one year in their role with an option to renew and there is no fundraising contribution required.
