Tech Titans: Community Citizens?
The biggest names in tech generally have good reputations as corporate citizens. But many companies don’t reach much beyond traditional philanthropy in their corporate citizenship. Though philanthropy is all well and good, tech companies in the Bay Area are often isolated from the communities near which they operate, and in which their employees live and commute. This constitutes a major challenge, putting pressure on public infrastructure – from available housing stock to transportation.
In this multi-media series, we examine how these companies operate as local and global citizens. Our coverage is organized around three core issues: housing, transportation and the service economy.
