Executive Director, Regional Recovery Initiative ‘Build Back Better’

About the Organization:

Joint Venture Silicon Valley is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. Established in 1993, Joint Venture provides analysis and action on issues affecting the Silicon Valley economy and quality of life. The organization brings together established and emerging leaders—from business, government, academia, labor and the broader community—to spotlight issues, launch projects and work toward innovative solutions.

About the Initiative:

The COVID-19 pandemic has had devastating public health and economic impacts in Silicon Valley. It has also uncovered and exacerbated the immediate needs of Silicon Valley communities and long-standing structural inequities that have led to a persistent housing crisis, financial instability, and uneven economic mobility for residents of color and undocumented status.

Joint Venture Silicon Valley, is making regional recovery and the opportunity to ‘build back better’, a significant component of our operations, and we are working across sectors with leaders and the community to provide coordination, research, a backbone infrastructure, and a framework to convene stakeholders for regional recovery efforts in close partnership with Bridge to Recovery and Equity Forward. (See Appendix for descriptions)

This initiative is also tasked to provide data, asset mapping, and transparent reporting. Using the Silicon Valley Recovery Roundtable and San Mateo County Recovery Initiative reports as a framework, the Building Back Better initiative will identify opportunities for collaboration, track gaps in resources and leadership, and reduce overlaps.
