Submitted by the Event Organizer
As San Francisco, the nation and the world emerge from the pandemic, people are eager to reconnect, to travel and to be taken to special places where they can create new memories. The City by the Bay is known as a beacon of diversity, equity and inclusion, and Alaska Airlines is proud to be launching this celebration, showcasing these shining examples of diversity, during Pride Month.
In this special series of webinars, held once a month starting in June 2021, five of San Francisco’s culturally rich neighborhoods will be highlighted. Each is home to a S.F. Cultural District – all of which have unique stories that will be told by local neighborhood representatives with deep roots, knowledge and love of their district.
During each webinar, Alaska Airlines will be offering attendees the opportunity to win a pair of tickets to any destination within the Alaska Airlines route network. In addition, those who attend all six webinars will have their names entered into a draw to win a pair of First Class Alaska Airlines tickets!
FIRST WEBINAR: JUNE 30, 2021 / 4-5PM
The series will kick off with the participation of five local leaders – one from each of the featured Cultural Districts – who will paint a high level picture of their special neighborhood and the role their organization plays in preserving and promoting the district. Confirmed speakers are:
