Annual Members Reception with San Francisco’s Mayor

Near the end of each year, celebrates all of the people who make our work possible by inviting our board, member companies, partners, and friends to come together at our Annual Members Reception. It has become custom to invite our city’s leader to join in the Members Reception fun. In 2017, we welcomed Mayor Ed Lee. And in both 2018 and 2019, we were honored to have Mayor London Breed, who spoke about the ever-growing role tech plays in San Francisco and what the industry can do to to keep the city moving forward.’s Big Idea Series

In October 2017, released its first white paper, “Taxing Innovation: The Challenge of Regulating Job Automation.” As artificial intelligence and automation have already radically changed the way we work, called on government and business to collaborate on an appropriate approach to automation in the workplace. In culmination with the paper’s release, then brought together a cross-section of 25 San Francisco leaders from the tech, nonprofit, and public sectors to discuss the ideas we prompted in the paper. We convened a panel of distinguished experts across various fields of work, including Roy Bahat of Bloomberg Data, Vikrum Aiyer of Postmates, Laurel Arvanitidis of the San Francisco Office of Economic and Workforce Development, and Abby Snay of JVS Bay Area, to spark an informative and engaging conversation around the future of work. This white paper and policy breakfast will be the first of many more to come.
