BAY AREA TECH, NONPROFIT LEADERS JOIN sf.citi’s ONE CITY FORUM
sf.citi is excited to welcome four renowned Bay Area community leaders from both the tech and nonprofit sectors on our One City Forum.

Join us in welcoming Fred Blackwell of the San Francisco Foundation, Amanda Lenaghan of Cruise, Bita Nazarian of 826 Valencia, and Orlando White of LinkedIn!
WHAT CALIFORNIA’S JUNE 15 REOPENING MEANS FOR TECH
sf.citi Executive Director Jennifer Stojkovic weighed in on how California’s June 15 statewide reopening will affect tech companies’ return to work plans. While June 15 certainly marks a turning point for California’s economy, it likely won’t prompt a wave of office reopenings in San Francisco. A major obstacle for tech companies and their employees is the fact that many San Francisco schools still have not resumed in-person learning.
EQUITY & RECOVERY WITH SUPERVISOR SHAMANN WALTON
As part of our 2021 Lunch and Learn series, District 10 Supervisor Shamann Walton talked to sf.citi members about his equity-focused approach to San Francisco’s recovery. Supervisor Walton noted that District 10 is now home to three navigation centers, the latest of which opened at 1925 Evans Street. He is currently working to develop a District 10 public safety plan that prioritizes police alternatives. He’s hopeful that this plan “can set a model for the rest of San Francisco.”
