We Are Not Robots: A CSR Meet Up

According to the Gini Coefficient, a measurement of income inequality, the wealth disparity in San Francisco is greater than that in Rwanda. With its tech industry contributing to the fastest growing income gap in the nation, San Francisco is a flash point of the division between rich and poor. The tech backlash, the pointing fingers solely at tech for social ailes, has become a rallying point for many people.
In response to the anger and frustration on both sides regarding this inequity, corporate social responsibility can be seen as a necessity. Yet, in a for-profit company whose primary goal is the bottom line, developing a strong Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) plan can be a challenge. This session will focus on the balancing act that is CSR. This Meet Up will explore the relationship of CSR within a company as well as specific issues regarding the tech backlash and the need for CSR in tech companies.
