Pandora, Uber, and beyond: Tech comes to Oakland

Kids growing up in Oakland witnessed the city changing due to an influx of tech professionals. Bay area native Adan Kapor and his wife, Freada Kapor Klein, saw Oakland as the perfect base to carry out their shared mission: to create diversity within tech. “There’s all the platitudes that diversity is good for business. But you look around tech, you look at how hugely profitable companies like Google and Facebook—all these behemoths—they’re staggeringly un-diverse, and they’re doing just fine. So we need to focus on different strategies.” Hear the story, by Youth Radio.
