Mission, Vision, Values

Last Updated: December 8, 2023

Our mission is to foster the health and vitality of Silicon Valley for all the people who live and work here. We pursue our mission by:

  • Providing data, research and analysis through our research arm, the Institute for Regional Studies.
  • Convening the region’s established and emerging leaders—across business, government, academia, labor, and the broader community—to take up the challenges spotlighted by the research.

We envision a region that:

  • Is home to a dynamic economy providing opportunity for all
  • Addresses its sustainability challenges
  • Achieves strength through diversity, in its many forms
  • Is informed by science and rooted in data
  • Searches for solutions through bold experimentation

As an organization we:

  • Broaden the voices involved in our work
  • Look beyond traditional power dynamics
  • Consider equity to be non-negotiable
  • Provide a workplace that is collaborative, inclusive and mutually respectful
  • Seek to embody the change we want to see in the world
