Diving into Wage Inequality
In honor of Equal Pay Day last week, sf.citi was pleased to convene our members and the broader San Francisco community to discuss and learn how various industries are addressing the gender wage gap. In partnership with Hired, sf.citi brought together a cross-section of industry leaders to have a panel conversation on the current state of gender pay equity in the workforce. The panel dug deep into the details surrounding the wage gap, referencing Hired’s 2018 Wage Inequality Report to help explain recent trends in the tech industry. Over 200 event attendees were also treated to an art installation from Val Britton, The Shape of Change, commissioned by Gallery Wendi Norris. This stunning material representation of the state of wage inequality was on full display at the Minnesota Street Project.
A special thank you to our panel participants:
- Dr. Veronica Gilrane, People Analytics at Google
- Kim Hoffman, Director of Talent Acquisition, Products & Technologies at Intuit
- Rana Sarkar, Consul General of Canada to Northern California & Silicon Valley
- Michelle Weaver, CFO at Hired
Thank you also to our gracious hosts at the Minnesota Street Project for providing a spectacular venue space and opening up their art galleries to our attendees for the night. Look forward to seeing you at our next event!
Mayor Mark Farrell Engages sf.citi Members on Housing, Public Safety, and More
sf.citi members sat down for an exclusive lunch with Mayor Mark Farrell at Amazon last week. Representatives from various member companies filled the room for the opportunity to ask the Mayor Farrell well-informed and timely questions about the current direction of the city. Topics discussed in our candid conversation included how companies can support the city’s efforts to reduces car break-ins, what solutions are being proposed to alleviate the housing crisis, and ideas on how to improve collaboration between tech employers and government on regulation of emerging technologies. These intimate lunches provide our members the opportunity to ask important questions to local leaders. With a busy election season ahead in both June and November, we look forward to holding more discussions on the future of San Francisco with City leaders.
