Celebrating Chip Conley

We are getting ready for one of San Francisco’s hottest young professional events, the 6th Annual GLIDE Legacy Gala! An evening filled with music and dance honoring change agents who are dedicated to improving the lives of poor and underserved communities, San Francisco will come out and celebrate a 51-year legacy of love, leadership and community as exemplified through the legendary work of GLIDE’s Co-Founders Rev. Cecil Williams and Janice Mirikitani.

Three innovative individuals will be honored during the GLIDE Community Hero Award Ceremony, and this year’s winner of the Cecil Williams Legacy Award is… Chip Conley! “Chip formerly served on the GLIDE Board of Trustees, he provided strategic and experienced wisdom. A person of all seasons, Chip reaches deeply into the heart and soul of the human condition,“ shared Janice Mirikitani. Rev. Cecil Williams added, “His leadership is brilliant and bold, courageous and compassionate, and radically inclusive of all cultures. He walks that walk!“

"The little tiny bit that we do, in some ways it’s insignificant to me, because when I see those lines of people out there, many of whom might have slept in a bag for who knows how long—it’s just a little thing that we can do to help them. My parents were always really good about trying to help out and donate. That just seems like part of what I am, too.” — Giuseppe Pennisi
