The Current State
We are experiencing a moment of massive social and economic disruption. Silicon Valley continues to be a place with striking and increasing inequities that disproportionately affect people of color.
“We used to lament that in Silicon Valley the rich kept getting richer while the poor became poorer. [...] Today we must frankly admit that the pandemic has made the rich richer while the poor are dying.”
- Joint Venture CEO Russell Hancock
