About the talk

Topic: Business

Share

Thank you so much for joining us. It's a real pleasure to talk to you. This Summit is all about the intersection of sports and technology 00:00 and it occurred to me this morning. We reserved a kind of unconditional love for athletes here in San Francisco that we we don't always give 00:09 to our technology Executives at companies San Francisco right now. So conflicted about the tech boom in at Smith's you think 00:19 it's amazing 00:28 athletes. It's really excited. Especially when you're rooting for your team. 00:37

Sometimes there's a disconnect between the technology 00:42 created and the people who created so yes. 00:52 Has been quite talented and because we're all on our 00:59 Uber or Lyft and get outside and complain about how 01:08 might be ruining the city but created by 01:17 industry and the people were part of the industry and the 01:21 people who are apart of the city, especially people who have been a part of the city for so many years. And so this industry 01:31 is not 01:40 necessarily the neighborhood the communities include the people who are already 01:49

Is about bringing more people to San Francisco, and we created 01:59 for every job we 02:04 created we created one of Housing and prepared for affordability in 02:14 San Francisco is already really expensive 02:24 baubles 02:26 associated with businesses leaving your city are much worse than in the business is being interested in creating a lot of child growth. But you know 02:48 when it comes to the problems that you inherited the affordability crisis How do you make a list of tech companies here to be a part of the solution 02:56

has so many of the tech businesses do well financially and we know that a lot of it has started here. 03:04 I think we got to go back to some faces when you have organ in. San Francisco 03:14 is about giving back to its about financially contribute 03:22 employed active, but it's also about hiring young people who live in San Francisco 03:30 call 03:38 opportunities for all where we provide paid internships for high school students in transition. 03:52 Industry 03:59 because 04:13 it does require a young person who's never had the opportunity to explore what 04:26

you were doing something 04:36 important part of changing the relationship 04:42 inside the company. 04:50 How do you how do you get the companies to really commit so the underserved members of San Francisco 04:59 companies like a 05:06 young 05:13 person is in college and 05:24 how 05:25 are they doing? I will just say that I'm had to provide 05:39 them. We have to provide them with the infrastructure. So opportunities for we have an infrastructure because a young person is showing up to your 05:49 your place. You have to figure out what to do. Like, 05:58

I 06:03 don't 06:19 want to be helped to coach me and help me understand some of the 06:30 things that 06:37 you needed to do in an office environment. 06:47 And how you really are becoming like like this is not just a one-time commitment. You have to 06:59 also have to provide the tools to help you through the process 07:09 and 07:17 committing to a bear breed are very active Board of Supervisors here have been suggest suggesting some 07:31 ideas as it relates to the community that could hit the ballot in the next few election one. Is it 24/7 mental health care, which of course I think we 07:40

all agree that we that we need here in the city, but one idea to pay for it is a tax and extra tax on tech companies where there's a gap. 07:50 CEO pay an employee paid so I guess I'm wondering how you feel about that. 07:59 We're 08:11 just getting the 08:24 people 08:24 elected to public office and your fair share when it comes 08:43 to being a part of such an amazing City Transit 08:53 Network companies with the support of Uber and Lyft so from the 09:03 Rideshare companies and working with them to help Provide support for our 09:13

transportation infrastructure in San Francisco cars play a role in the infrastructure and congestion and all of the other things 09:23 but 09:33 one other proposition question, there's one idea for an extra IPO tax. How do you how do you feel about that 09:48 charge an IPO tax bringing 09:57 stakeholders and having comprehensive? Some walks out the room upset about the the outcome. We 10:06 have to make sure that we're using data we have to make sure that we are being collaborative making sure there are also some 10:16

concerns of implementation from the 10:26 opportunities 10:29 for low and middle-income San Francisco taxes without having a 10:40 real 10:49 boat on 10:50 e-cigarettes is it will be safer and more legal to smoke cannabis and it will be two Puffs on a vape. 11:00 The problem I have is that the FDA has not produced any day to help us 11:09 understand the health impacts of e-cigarettes. Where can I buy from the company's at this helps people get off cigarettes. This helps 11:19 companies word for the resource that the companies pay for as a way to determine 11:27

is how many young people use this product and we 11:37 still don't understand impacts of this product. I think the FDA approve 11:47 of this product that we should not allow those things to be sold on the market 11:54 in the future, but we need to understand Terrible for health are 12:01 there legal 12:11 or 12:12 not? San Francisco voters San Francisco public housing and and then became the first female African-American 12:21 mayor in the city's history for re-election in the upcoming elections. 12:31

So I I mean it started with my grandmother my grandmother passed away in 2016. She raised me like really hard 12:46 for the community, you know, it's just started early and 12:55 I was because I had an opportunity to go to college in 13:04 the process of going. I'm 13:13 going to funerals on a regular basis. I'm losing my friends and my family and I just felt like why me why I only need and that can't be and so 13:23 from a lot of people in the community 13:33 for mayor Willie Brown Closest presidential candidate 13:40

Kamala Harris a lot of 13:50 kinds of policy 13:52 decisions like this is absolutely 14:01 we're already what's in the most unexpected thing for you about being there 14:11 to just go into a store and pick something up 14:17 all the time. 14:26 It's been a little bit of a negative National reputation around San Francisco lately a lot of attention focus on the 15:05 affordability crisis on on home Wilson North you run for re-election. How do you how do you start the change to some of the other 15:15 anybody 15:24

where I lived with my grandmother stayed in the window and she wouldn't yell at people dropping stuff on the ground. Brown or how 15:36 I don't care. If you live in the project, you don't have to treat them like the project. This is your home. This is where you live 15:46 is of course investing millions of dollars in providing more places for people to use 15:55 cleaning the streets and power washing. 16:02 But also we have to change people's attitude because the back 16:12 row something on the ground and I was 16:16

cleaning 16:25 up the streets. We gotten over almost 15 16:36 Navigation 16:45 Center, one thing that we're going to be able 16:49 to do we have past this conservative 16:59 were talking about 17:03 health 17:11 facility. And so our legislation will allow us to force someone into treatment. 17:21 What are we doing now? There's cycling in our system. 17:27 Another 200 17:45 is when we provide these kinds of solutions 17:49 are what's going to get us to a better pushback 17:59 really needs to be evenly distributed 18:02 is right next to where you live 18:11

thousands of people who are homeless in San Francisco, but 18:15 we have to do things differently. 18:25 If we want to really put a dent in the housing affordability is a part of it but having fun, 18:35 Actually sadly people who are mentally ill with substance use disorder 18:45 because I'm a native San Franciscan 18:49 and I want to see if 18:59 we want to see real changes. 19:00 I want to leave time for a couple of audience questions. So please start thinking about your questions for mayor breed. But but one more from me, you 19:10

know, the Warriors are coming home. They're moving to San Francisco and coming home. Can you remind, 19:18 are you doing relation with the 19:25 with the team and make sure they're Synergy with the community there in Mission Bay and also possible to to the full population, San Francisco. 19:34 So, you know, I'm glad you asked that because before the Warriors started their even their process of coming to San Francisco their foundation and the 19:45 work that they were doing the San Francisco 19:54

allow 20:01 local businesses, especially in the Southeast sector of the city to have access to taste areas 20:12 to sell their product right here in San Francisco 20:22 bears and other things in order to 20:25 get prepared and are committed to making sure that kids all over San Francisco. 20:35 I just really started off on the right foot and then a great Community partner so far. 20:45 search Uber lime bird excetera, how are you guys at City Hall thinking about like Urban mobility in the future city, like what are the 21:10

thoughts on your mind? And I think I think one of them in the 21:19 past. Reactive focused on 21:29 more 21:36 opportunities. We got to get people around the city more efficiently. And so right now I'm in the process of working with our 21:45 apartment where we have the direct we're going to be hiring a new director and I'm hoping for someone who is a 21:54 platform. How do we make it possible 22:02 for people with changes to our infrastructure to move around and walk 22:12 from my perspective so many people on bikes on Market Street, but at the same time, it's not 22:21

completely safe, right? How to make those kinds of people choose to use other modes of transportation future we're 22:31 making 22:41 those changes to our infrastructure is going to be critical but I'll tell you it has not been easy, but that's really the future of the city 22:52 especially if we're talking about building more housing and other parts of San Francisco. We got to be creative about the city 23:02 One more question right here. I'm a breeder. I'm from Oakland born and raised. I did go to Saint Francis 23:12

School in San Francisco. And I were talking about some of these issues around 23:22 housing and you know equity and work with city government and Technology to help these 23:32 issues, especially with players in particular. Are so excited and our practices and so I'm I 23:41 call will get them more actively engaged in our public school system and I want them to show up one day and 23:51 there's a big high school and investing 24:01 programs 24:09 are underperforming school where 24:14 African-Americans in my 24:21

budget. I added additional 10 million dollars to pay more in order to retain him cuz 24:31 the players 24:37 This is the school. I'm going to adopt. This is how 24:46 I'm going to support its almost less of a player 24:52 for the purposes of inspiring young people. 25:02 I'm hoping to get folks in the Warriors more actively 25:06 engaged cuz it could really make a difference. Ameribrade. I know you have a busy day actually running this big complicated City. So thank you for 25:16 doing that. 25:25
