Oakland Hub

The Oakland Hub of the Global Shapers, an initiative of the World Economic Forum, is a community of civic minded leaders serving to drive systemic change through the forging of public, private and community partnerships both locally and globally.

Through creative events and projects, we aim to collectively utilize our social, financial and digital capital to maximize our efforts and work to build more inclusive, sustainable environments.

Our success lies in our ability to work alongside those directly impacted by societal issues and we are devoted to being a bridge that connects Oakland’s rich history to its present and future.
