What's the Future of the Office in SF? w/ SPUR CEO Alicia John-Baptiste

We're so excited to begin to bring back in-person civic events in this new series we're calling Manny's @ Curio dinner and a conversation series - The Future of San Francisco. We've got four evenings over the next month, each addressing four aspects of the future life of our City: politics, art, work, and transportation.

On May 5th we are discussing the future of the office. Learn more below:

For those who worked in office settings, the pandemic forced us to change the way we worked overnight. Working from home went from a unique to ubiquitous. What will the future hold? Will the office workers be forced to come back to HQ? What would a hybrid model (partly at home and partly at an office) mean for the local economy, for the sense of life on our streets, for our downtown, and for the physical layout and feel of the offices themselves?

Joining us for this important discussion will be the CEO of SPUR (San Francisco Bay Area Planning and Urban Research Association) one of the main organizations focusing on the future of San Francisco and Bay's urban landscape.
