Speaker: Shiloh Ballard- President and Executive Director, Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition
Shiloh will give an overview talk on the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, their mission and the important work they do to make cycling safer and more comfortable for all of us who live and ride in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties.
Shiloh Ballard comes to the Bike Coalition after over 14 years at the Silicon Valley Leadership Group as Senior Vice President of Housing and Community Development. In her role with the Leadership Group, Shiloh helped direct the organization’s housing, transportation and land use policy portfolio working with industry, civic, and community leaders to develop innovative solutions to the region’s growth challenges. She was at the center of several significant policy wins including the adoption of uniform green building policies in Santa Clara County, the passage of strong affordable housing policies in Silicon Valley Cities, and the passage of Proposition 1C, in 2006. She was recognized by the Silicon Valley Business Journal as a 2010 “40 under 40” as well as a YWCA “Woman in Leadership” in 2012, the 2015 Housing Hero by the leading Statewide Housing organization, California Housing Consortium and as a 2019 Woman of the Year by Senator Beall.
Shiloh is a proud slug, having earned a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies from UC Santa Cruz. She previously worked for the State Senate and the Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition and currently serves on the board of the Santa Clara County Chapter of the League of Conservation Voters; the Housing Trust, Silicon Valley; and a new organization that she helped to found, SV@Home. A glutton for punishment, Shiloh served 5 years on the San José Planning Commission.
In her spare time, Shiloh enjoys reading, cooking, growing vegetables and mountain biking. She lives with her long-time partner and their cat, Butter.
