We are wrapping up all of the amazing work that came out of Bay Area Bold 2015.

Stay tuned for updates about what is next as we pivot to bold action, together.

At The San Francisco Foundation, we believe racial and economic inclusion are ever more critical to ensuring our region’s continued vibrancy and prosperity.

In a region in which people-of-color are the majority, communities of color will continue to drive growth and change into the foreseeable future.

Bay Area Bold Summit is a call for collective regional action to tap into this potential, unlock opportunities for all people in the Bay Area, and work together for racial and economic inclusion.

Bay Area Bold Festival is a community celebration elevating the cultural core of our community, featuring music, dance, film, and interactive artistic and cultural activations.

Be Inspired. Be Creative. Be Bold.

Bay Area Bold brought leaders, visionaries, and innovators together with the larger Bay Area community for two days of fresh thinking, connection, artistic and cultural activations, and celebration.

Let’s see what’s possible when we bet on ourselves.
