Join other members of the business community for a compelling breakfast conversation on San Francisco’s efforts to improve educational and workforce opportunities for African American youth. Attendees will hear from top city leaders working on this effort and learn how they and their companies can support this work.
In 2014, President Obama issued the My Brother and Sister’s Keeper Community Challenge to cities across the country, asking them to address the opportunity gaps faced by youth of color in their city. San Francisco accepted the challenge and formed a local team that has been working on eliminating opportunity gaps for young people in the City. In this executive briefing, attendees will receive an in-depth look at the collaborative’s work to improve opportunities for African American youth in San Francisco.
Matt Thomas (African American Chamber of Commerce) and Orlando White (LinkedIn) will co-moderate a discussion with key MBSK leaders:
Sheryl Davis, Executive Director of the SF Human Rights Commission
Dr. Vincent Matthews, Superintendent of San Francisco Unified School District
Theo Miller, Office of the Mayor, San Francisco
Katie Ferrick, Director of Community Affairs, LinkedIn
The conversation will provide insight into SFUSD’s African American achievement initiative and how the new superintendent plans to address the opportunity gaps that persist. Business leaders will learn about specific ways to support education and workforce development for 16-24-year-olds in the City.
We will be meeting in LinkedIn’s stunning SoMa office. Breakfast will be served, and attendees will be able to network before and after the program.
