The Annual Forum is the Silicon Valley Leadership Group’s largest event of the year. This event brings together members of the community, local and national business leaders, elected officials, community partners and more. It’s a chance to look back at SVLG’s work of the past year and look ahead at the issues and challenges we’ll work on next. We will have a special appearance from Governor Gavin Newsom, who will share his thoughts on the path forward to strengthen California’s world-class innovation economy and create greater shared value for all Californians.
It’s also a chance to recognize the extraordinary leadership in our Silicon Valley community. Our 2021 Annual Forum presents the Spirit of Silicon Valley Award to Eric S. Yuan, CEO of Zoom. During an unprecedented time of upheaval, Zoom transformed its product to be the connecting communication in nearly all of our lives. The founder who led Zoom to that ubiquitous place in our culture, sits down with Logitech CEO, Bracken Darrell, for an intimate conversation.
Our NextGenNOW series talks to the rising California leaders who are shaping policy across the Golden State.
We’ll share a spotlight conversation with our member Amazon about their transformational moves in sustainability.
Ahmad Thomas, our CEO, sits down with Santa Clara County Public Health Officer Dr. Sara Cody to talk about where we are in the Covid pandemic, and what’s coming next with boosters, with our children and our community.
