San Francisco Summit 2022: Back in the Castro

About San Francisco
Summit 2022

As we approach the 2022 midterm elections, it’s never been more important to come together and save democracy.

We believe that we can create the world we want to live in — and we dream of a world where diverse representation in tech, business, and politics shows everyone that they can lead.

We’ve spent too much of our wild and precious lives quarantined behind computer screens. It’s time to come together and fight for what really matters — equity in the tech industry and for our Squad around the world.

Join us back at the Castro October 12-15 in San Francisco.
