Diversity in Tech: Portland Based Solutions (Panel & Happy Hour)
eBay

In alignment with the TechTown PDX Diversity Pledge, we too believe it is necessary to do more than just talking about the need for a more diverse tech sector. As tech professionals, we think collective action and accountability are required to address the underrepresentation of women, LGBTQ+, and people of color in our industry.

Tremendous thank you to our sponsor team at The Riveter!

The Riveter is on a mission to change the future of work for all women. This means tough conversations, clear actions and key leadership on core diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) principles, advocacy and civic engagement.

Thank you also to our food sponsor, ProFocus!

ProFocus was built on a model of quality and integrity specifically designed to solve that problem for customers and candidates. Their business model is focused on only making careful introductions of the right candidates. They do this by fully understanding technology, our candidates, and the needs for each hiring position. _
