TechEquity Presents: Should Tech Companies Be Political?

Partner Events

This past year, we’ve seen tech giants getting involved in the political realm more explicitly. Just this year, Uber, Lyft, and Postmates poured $200 million into their Prop 22 campaign. Other companies, like Coinbase, banned politics in their workplace. With a growing affordability crisis in the Bay Area and beyond, many of us are wondering, what should be the role of tech companies in politics?

Join us on Thursday, December 10th at noon as we discuss how tech companies have engaged in political issues—or not. We’ll talk with Assemblymember David Chiu, Pantheon’s CEO Zack Rosen, Blend’s Head of Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging Ulysses J. Smith, and Kurt Nelson, Senior Software Engineer at Uber and author of the op-ed I’m a software engineer at Uber and I’m voting against Prop 22.

Agenda:

  • Webinar kicks off at 12:00 PM
  • Panel discussion begins at 12:05 PM
  • Q&A from attendees from 12:40-1:00 PM
