Meet SVB’s ‘Woke’ board of directors

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

One is a Hillary Clinton mega-donor who went to a Shinto shrine to pray after Donald Trump won the White House.

A third is a prolific contributor to Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi — who owns a Napa Valley vineyard just 15 minutes from his.

There’s even an improv performer.

The 12 directors who were supposed to oversee fallen Silicon Valley Bank — and prevent the catastrophic errors on Friday threw the entire banking system into jeopardy — might not be household names.
