Action Alert | San Francisco Chronicle: Mostly White Dudes Know Visionaries
The word visionary is defined as “a person with original ideas about what the future will or could be like,” and when thinking about what the future will or could be like, a group of mostly white dudes is exactly who we want determining outcomes, right?

Who makes up the VisionSF Nominating Committee?
The VisionSF Nominating Committee is led by San Francisco Chronicle Editorial Page Editor John Diaz (a guy). The Nominating Committee includes visionaries in their own right: white guy Greg Becker, non-white guy Emmett D. Carson, white guy Ron Conway, white guy Steve Malnight, OMG A WOMAN! Libby Schaaf, another woman Charlotte M. Shultz, and surprise! white guy George P. Shultz.
