About Us

Past – Present – Future

Since our founding in 1977, the Silicon Valley Leadership Group has worked to develop, promote, pass and implement policy initiatives that benefit our members, their employees and the Bay Area. As the tech industry moved to the forefront of our global economy, the SVLG’s policy work expanded beyond the confines of Silicon Valley.

The challenges of 2020 have sharpened our understanding of our policy goals. Schools must have access to technology to function. STEM careers are essential to the health of our population globally. We learned that many of us can work from home effectively, reducing road congestion and carbon emissions. California and the United States must actively work on all aspects of climate change. The approach must be comprehensive, from reducing carbon emissions through resiliency projects for communities impacted by flooding, fires, mud and other consequences of our changing climate.

We saw the pain of communities torn apart by injustice.

In direct response to the losses of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd, our Board of Directors voted unanimously to support the formation of the Racial Justice and Equity Portfolio. This portfolio, through advocacy, policy initiatives and work with our partners, will contribute to the equity of Black, Brown and indiginous (BIPOC) people in our community and in our businesses.

These are challenging times, but working together on these and other issues will help us move our businesses and communities into a brighter future.

The Leadership Group stands, as we have for nearly 50 years, working to improve today and looking towards a bright, equitable future.

Our Mission

To support, enrich and drive the entrepreneurial innovation ecosystem of Silicon Valley for our members, our community and our leading industries.
