and New Event: Summer Networking
As a wrote a few days ago, I've been exploring new platforms to use to keep SFTech4Good going. Earlier l shared Upstream's Coronavirus Helping and Hiring Community. It's focused on providing something of value for people looking for work or hiring.
SFTech4Good now has its own community on Upstream! Currently, Upstream is iOS only, BUT Android is coming in a few weeks. They'll also have a desktop version too.
No FOMO needed. We'll all be able to join very soon. Please join the SFTech4Good community on Upstream here.
This is the time of the year that I take an SFTech4Good summer hiatus, BUT COVID-19 meant there has only been one event this year.
We all know that one big plus to SFTech4Good events is the networking, so I’m bringing it to your mobile phone.
I’m rolling this out initially for 50 attendees. That’s about half of the RSVP limit I use for most of the in-person events. I’ll change things up and do more of these as we go, so don’t fret if you’re waitlisted.
The format for this event is called Video Breakout. Once the event starts, I'll give a quick live video introduction. You’ll then be matched for quick one-on-one video chats with other attendees. From start to finish you'll be matched with six people. This is a great way to meet new people professionally.
You'll be able to find the full list of attendees on the Event screen, in the Upstream App.

Make food donations on a local level, such as the Alameda County Food Bank. Why? Communities that were already struggling with COVID-19 are now in worse situations as a result of local businesses getting destroyed or having to board up.
