Patti Jazanoski — The San Francisco Chronicle
In her Jan. 5, 2017, op-ed Jazanoski appeals to the technology community:
It’s time for technology CEOs to issue clear statements that their companies will not be complicit in any way. They can prove their corporate mottoes — “Culture & Inclusion” (Cisco) and “Corporate Social Responsibility” (Microsoft) — are not just empty slogans. Issuing a strong statement will help tech companies attract the best employees and signal to customers and the world that they will not betray them.
