THE CHANGING FACE OF SOCIAL IMPACT WORK
Over the past two years, the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the social impact world, changing how social impact professionals operate their programs and bringing new issues to the forefront. sf.citi’s One City Forum—a leadership committee of nonprofit executives and tech social impact leaders—wanted to highlight these changes by creating Lessons from Scaling Social Impact in a Remote World. In this report, leaders at 826 Valencia, Cruise, Okta, and Twitter discuss how the pandemic affected their programming, how they overcame new challenges, and what it means long-term for social impact work.
DEPUTY CHIEF DAVID LAZAR FOCUSES ON INCREASING PUBLIC SAFETY
sf.citi kicked off the 2022 Lunch and Learn discussion series with Deputy Chief David Lazar. We were joined by sf.citi members Comcast, Cruise, Intuit, Microsoft, Salesforce, Twitter, Waymo, Zoox, and more.
Deputy Chief Lazar spoke to our members about the current state of the City and how the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) plans to address rising concerns of public safety. Lazar highlighted how the SFPD measures success through crime prevention, and not by arresting people or writing tickets. To achieve successful levels of crime prevention though, the City needs to urgently address its staffing shortage and expand successful policing alternatives like the Community Ambassador program.
LOOKING BACK AT 2021 ONE MORE TIME
At the end of 2021, sf.citi debuted our 2021 Annual Report—the culmination of our work with tech, government, and nonprofit leaders during an incredibly hectic year. We are hopeful that in 2022, we are able to gain more stability throughout the year and reignite an unprecedented recovery in San Francisco. Clearly, though, there is a lot of work to be done. Before charging into the new year, however, we invite you to take a look back and celebrate the things we as a community were able to achieve in year two of the COVID-19 pandemic.
