Event description

Alana Washington will join us to officially kick off San Francisco Design Week 2021. Join us to start your day and to hear Alana share her thoughts and insight about this years theme: Power

This years theme was in part inspired by our dear friend and colleague, August de los Reyes who we lost this past December due to complications from Covid19. August was a pioneer in inclusive and accessible design.

Dawn Zidonis and Andre Pennycooke will give tribute to August directly following Alana’s opening remarks.
