West Coast tech giants permeate our lives and are an increasingly ubiquitous presence in Chicago. From Google's pioneering move to the West Loop to Uber’s establishment of Freight headquarters in the South Loop, these companies help power urban growth, attract skilled talent, and shape industries from real estate to restaurants. How do these companies view Chicago as part of their overall strategy? Why are they growing headcount here? Will it continue? And most importantly what kinds of functions are they locating here versus elsewhere? We'll hear from leaders in the Chicago offices of LinkedIn, Uber, and Google in conversation with Chicago's own tech leader Amanda Lannert.
