Inclusion has become a popular buzzword these days. But what does it really mean, why is it important, and what can we actually do about it? Our February PubTalk will cut through the jargon and vague “good intentions,” bringing uncomfortable truths about our startup community’s implicit biases to light. Attendees will walk away with a list of concrete actions they can take today to help ensure that all Oregon entrepreneurs have access to the support and resources they need to thrive.

Our all-star panel will feature Stephen Green of Elevate Capital (moderator), Paige Hendrix Buckner of ClientJoy, Tory Campbell of Felton & Mary’s Artisan Foods, Dwayne Johnson of ScaleUp Partners, and Grace Andrews of Puppet Labs and Lurabel.

As always, the program will be preceded by time for networking and will include free appetizers and pizza. Registration begins at 5:15 p.m.

Cost: $10 for OEN members; $20 for non-members. We do take walk-ins but prefer that you register online: http://bit.ly/feb-2016-pubtalk
