Moment to Momentum – SVLG Racial Justice & Equity Summit

The 2023 RJE Summit, Moment to Momentum, is about ways Silicon Valley companies are taking the events and conversations around diversity of the last two years and trying to catalyze them into lasting change. A dynamic and interactive event, the content is open to those directly involved in corporate conversations on equity and identity as well as those who want to get involved and know more. Headlined by celebrity keynote, Van Jones, who bridges the space between media and tech, our event also features two panels on key issues that touch on the intersections of inclusion and innovation economy.  It’s an opportunity to directly connect with diversity officers from our member companies and beyond as well as a chance for them to connect with each other. 

More information to come.

Van Jones is widely known as a U.S. media personality, an entrepreneur and a world-class change maker. Outside of his roles as a CNN contributor and host of Amazon Music Podcast, Uncommon Ground, Jones has a rare track record in the modern era of bringing people together to do hard things — in areas as diverse as clean energy solutions, criminal justice reform and racial inclusion in the tech sector. In 2007, Van was the primary champion of the Green Jobs Act, signed into law by George W. Bush. In 2009, he worked in the Obama White House as the Special Advisor for Green Jobs. In 2018, he helped pass the FIRST STEP Act – which the New York Times calls the most substantial breakthrough in criminal justice in a generation. In 2021, Jones was one of the first two recipients of Jeff Bezos’ Courage & Civility Award. Over the past 25 years, Van has founded and led many successful social enterprises, including REFORM Alliance, Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, Color of Change, Green For All and the Dream.Org. He worked with Prince to launch #YesWeCode (now called Dream.TECH) to get jobs in the tech sector for scores of low-opportunity young people. A world-class communicator of world-class ideas, Van is also a CNN host, an Emmy Award-winning producer and a 3X New York Times best-selling author.
