About Saldy Suriben, CMO

Tenure:

Been with Silicon Valley Pride: six years.

Why I Volunteer:

Because I want to make a difference and contribute back to South Bay LGBT Community, I volunteer my time. 

I started as a committee member since 2014. then became part of the board since 2017. I'm tired of people complaining that there's nothing to do in San Jose therefore I volunteer to change that mindset. 

About Me:

I was born in the Philippines but raise in San Jose. I have a degree in Marketing from San Jose State University.

Currently I'm an event coordinator for Giant Creative and enjoy planning events. In addition to helping plan Silicon Valley Pride, I helped with GLAAD Media Awards and The Voice Awards handling the VIP Gift Bags and backstage green room.

Marketing, Event Planning, Cross Promotion Partnership, Video Games, Anime, Parade, and any aspect of festival. 

My Hopes:

I hope to bring more events for the South Bay LGBTQ+ to make Silicon Valley more colorful and prideful.
