SV to DC, Building a Bridge to a Better Democracy

Bridge Builders.

More than anything else, Silicon Valley CEOs play a vital role as “Bridge Builders” linking the world’s capitol of Innovation with Washington, DC, our nation’s political Capitol.

It’s why a dozen CEOs are setting aside the intense responsibilities of running globally competitive companies to engage Washington on issues of importance to our region, our employees, our communities, and our country.

On April 1 and 2, member company CEOs and C-Suite officers will be joined by a half-dozen local elected leaders to underscore that when it comes to a healthy economy and robust quality of life, we are always better when working together.

If you share our concern about funding for BART and Caltrain, Immigration Reform, Privacy, CyberSecurity and Healthcare, then join us. It’s time to Show Up, Stand Up and Speak Up.

Join CEOs including Steve Milligan of Western Digital, Greg Becker of Silicon Valley Bank, Tom Werner of SunPower, James Gutierrez of Aura, Ainsley Braun of Tinfoil Security, Zac Bookman of OpenGov and Alex Loften of Landed. Advocate side-by-side with elected leaders San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors’ President Joe Simitian, San Mateo County Supervisor Dave Pine and San Jose City Councilmember Lan Diep.

Join us. Swim against the tide. It’s easy to view DC today as a place where bridges are being burned down, but we can continue to show that true leaders can still be bridge builders.
